Had a nice time at the Fort Jennings Public Library this morning. I was providing an Astronomy Program for the Library's "A Universe of Stories" summer program. This was the smallest Library I have done so far. Thank you to the staff for your assistance and to Pat at the main Library in Ottawa for inviting me. It turned cloudy so no Solar viewing today.

Today is Friday so that means Schoonover Observatory will be open to the public tonight at dusk. It is suppose to be clear so our main objects of interest will be the Moon and the planets Jupiter and Saturn. Many other objects will be visible also such as nebulas, galaxies, and exploding stars.
Also we will be showing astronomy learning programs in the meeting room. Joining the Lima Astronomical Socuety is inexpensive and will in time allow you full use of the Observatory and equipment. See any member for an application. ...
Spent a wonderful morning at the Logan County Library in Bellefontaine doing an Astronomy Program for the Library's "A Universe of Stories" Summer theme. This is the first Library program this summer I have done where it was actually clear enough to view the Sun with the telescope. Unfortunately the Sunspot seen the last couple days has dissolved. Thank you Holly for your assistance and pictures.
I will be doing the same program tomorrow at the Auglaize County Library in Wapakoneta at 10:30 am
