Amateur astronomy is alive and well in Culpeper, Virginia!
The Astronomy Program in Culpeper was started a little over a year ago and meets monthly at the Public Library. Myron Wasiuta, the program originator and instructor, advertises the program as a way to learn the sky one constellation at a time. The monthly meetings typically provide an hour of instruction on several seasonal constellations followed by an hour or more observing session in front of the library. Attendees include both adult and children, but the instruction is focused on the beginner astronomer. Attached are some photos of our monthly meeting and observing session.
