Friday October 4th, 2019 at 8:00pm is the monthly meeting of the Lima Astronomical Society at Schoonover Observatory. There will be a short business meeting followed by a program by Michael Ritchie on the Northeast Astronomy Forum that was held in New York last April. Observing with the telescope will follow the program.

Saturday October 5th is Astronomy Day and also International Observe the Moon Night. Schoonover Observatory will be open at 6:00pm for observation of the Moon, Planets, and various Celestial objects. Continous programs will be shown in the meeting room on any astronomical subject visitors want to see.

If you have a telescope that you are unsure about using, then bring it and we will show you how to use it. If the clouds stay away we will be mainly looking at the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and a mixed bag of Nebulas, Clusters, Exploding Stars, and Galaxies.
