The first Salina Astronomy Club event for the 2014-2015 Skywatch season will be a “Star Party” that starts at 8 p.m. Sat. Aug. 23, and will be held outside on the Kansas Wesleyan University campus, just south of the front entrance to Memorial Library.
Some Salina Astronomy Club members will bring their telescopes, and the president of the club, KWU’s Dr. Dorothy Hanna, hopes for at least three on the ground. The public are invited to come and enjoy observing through the various telescopes, and to bring their own telescopes and binoculars. The KWU Observatory will also be open.
