Astronomy in the Park Cancelled

Weather is not our friend lately.  I don't know about you, but I got up this morning to see the moon occult Venus, and it was so cloudy, I couldn't even see the moon! And now it looks like rain for the next couple of days, so we're going to have to cancel Astronomy in the Park on Wednesday. We'll cross our fingers for next week!

Valentine's Stargazing

In honor of Valentine's Day, we'll be at the Cooper River Memorial Branch Library with a telescope or two pointed at Venus. Thursday, February 13th at 6:30pm, come take a look at our sister planet! We'll be available to talk to about the stars, and the library staff can even assist you with checking out a telescope. Weather permitting, of course.

Astronomy in the Park Cancelled

Weather is getting worse, so we have to cancel Astronomy in the Park tonight. There's always net week!

Astronomy in the Park and our February Meeting

The weather looks cloudy again for this week's Astronomy in the Park. There's really no chance of rain, but it appears we will have a fair amount of cloud cover. I don't know what will be visible, so it might be a good night for conversations with our members about astronomy.

Astronomy in the Park happens almost every Wednesday at sunset at Brittlebank Park.

Our February meeting is on Thursday. We will have a presentation on the Cherry Springs Star Party, and we'll have election of officers.

Lowcountry Stargazers meets monthly at Atlantic Aviation, 6060 S Aviation Blvd, 29406, at 7pm on the first Thursday of the month, except July when we meet on the second Thursday. Please check our website or Facebook for more info.

The entrance to Atlantic Aviation is around the side in the back, under the awning. For directions to the main entrance, please see the link below.
