The first Friday in June is 6 June, and that is Astronomy Night on the National Mall. The MC Rockville folks will be joining forces with our esteemed colleague from the Takoma Park / Silver Spring campus, Dr. Harold Williams. We will be there with telescopes and binoculars. Hopefully it will be clear!
In July, the first Friday is the fourth of July holiday, so there will be no observatory night. I still want to have two guest nights that month, but they will be held on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month. Things are normal for August.
Summer Guest Night Schedule:
Friday 20 June 2014 : 9:30 PM - 10:30 PM
Friday 11 July 2014 : 9:30 PM - 10:30 PM
Friday 25 July 2014 : 9:30 PM - 10:30 PM
Friday 1 August 2014 : 9:30 PM - 10:30 PM
Friday 15 August 2014 : 9:30 PM - 10:30 PM
Please note the later start. Civil twilight ends around 9 PM during the summer months and we want it to be nice and dark.
