Fellow Chicago Astronomers...
 
This will be a busy Saturday for urban astronomy and the Chicago Astronomer crew.

First, we will be part of the opening day events at the brand new "606 Bloomingdale Trail"  conducting solar viewings starting at 12 noon and sharing the Sun till 3:00 pm.

Then after a five hour break, we will head toward Oz park on Chicago's north side and continue with evening observation of planets and springtime targets.

Full details on both here:

Stop by and enjoy the new 606 park during the day and the stars at Oz park at night.

Fellow Chicago Astronomers...


Finally, after many cancellations and relocations, The Chicago Astronomer crew will set-up scopes this Saturday, the 19th of July 2014, at 8pm till 10:30 pm - just west of the Adler Planetarium building.

Weather has been terrible and disruptive events in the museum campus have affected C.A. star parties at our primary site, but it looks good for a weekend with our fans and the cosmos.

Details here:

Check the Chicago Astronomer website and social media feeds for confirmations and updates.

Be there....you know you want to.
