Star Party at the Library!
September 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Main Library (Traverse City)
TADL is hosting a Star Party in partnership with the Grand Traverse Astronomical Society (GTAS).
The Star party will take place from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. (in the McGuire Community Room) with Dr. David Penney, who will give a brief introduction about his DARK MATTER program which is at TADL on Wednesday, October 18th. Then GTAS outreach coordinator, Bob Moler, will introduce the Grand Traverse Astronomical Society and talk about many exciting things to observe in the night sky.
If the skies are clear, we will make our way outside to the southern sky line at the south end of the Main Library (Woodmere) building to look at the first quarter moon and visible celestial bodies.
Bring your library card and place a hold on our lending telescope kit (pictured), so you can continue to learn and explore the night sky at home!
For additional information, or questions about the TADL lending telescope kit, please contact TADL’s A/V Dept. Coordinator, Aaron Olson. Call (231) 932-8534
