Happy New Year to everyone. We, members of the Lima Astronomical Society are hoping 2019 will be one of our best years. We hope to bring to the public new ways of viewing the heavens above. Watch here on Facebook for upcoming announcements.

We are also hoping to bring another observatory in a darker sky area to the Lima area. The Lima Astronomical Society is accepting tax deductible donations to help us get the observatory off to a good start. We are a non-profit tax exempt 501 (C) (3) organization.

Donations can be sent to the Treasurer Lima Astronomical Society P.O. Box 201 Lima Ohio 45801. You can also drop off your donation on our meeting nights at Schoonover Observatory the first Friday of each month at 8:00pm. We are trying to get a donation button on our web site and Facebook page. Watch for it.
