Our next monthly meeting will be Thursday, July 6th, at 7:30 P.M.

August 3rd Program

With the upcoming eclipse, we will be doing a program about safe observing of the eclipse, both here and on the path of totality. Many people think it is more dangerous to observe during the eclipse than other times, but that is not true. What is true is that more people will attempt to look at the sun directly during the eclipse. Proper knowledge about observing is key to helping the public observe the eclipse.

Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium.   (see Calendar/Event for directions)

Open to the public. Meetings are held in the Planetarium. Formed to educate the public, school children and Scouts about the wonders of the night sky!

Plan ahead to attend future Meetings!
