Hi all!

 

The Quad Cities Astronomical Society is holding its annual star party, the Eastern Iowa Star Party, on the evenings of September 23rd, 24th, and 25th.

 

This year's event is being held fee free, however, donations are always welcome to help defray costs and support the QCAS Observatory Relocation Project...

 

As we are in the post COVID recovery mode, this will be a simple event... no formal guest speakers, although we will talk a little about our exciting plans for the site, and I'll give a demo of the new remote accessible Wilton School Observatory... and maybe even a field trip there if we have the interest.

 

The site has a climate controlled class room with both men and women's restrooms, electricity to various locations on the field, and is near the Dixon Legion for great burgers and such...

 

I would like RSVP's by Sept 1 if possible... and those that email me before then will be entered in a raffle.

 

For more info, IM me and I'll get you my email address for more info. 

 

The site is called the Menke Observatory which is located at the Wapsi River Environmental Educational Center, which is just outside of Dixon, Iowa.

 

A Google Map link to the site is as follows: https://goo.gl/maps/svKoY9kGvQ6sQuaN8

 

Hope to see ya there!

Alas, I can't make it this year, but I'd love to send a donation anyway.  Where and how should I send one?

 

Maybe I'll have better luck next year and be able to go.
