Picayune- Girl Scouts Outreach Sat June 22nd

Post by Bjohnson » Fri Jun 21, 2019 11:39 am

We have an outreach scheduled for Tomorrow- Saturday June 22nd. It has been mentioned at several of the meetings, but we are still looking for a few members to help out. This is for a Girl Scout Troop in Picayune to earn their Astronomy badges. Looking for 2-3 more telescopes to assist. Arrive around 7:00-7:15 and begin approximately 7:30-7:45. Expect to end about 9:30-10:00PM. If you can help, let us know.

Nanette has the program needed for the Girl Scouts, and we will be showing several different viewables, depending on conditions. There will not be a moon available, but we hope to show Jupiter, an open cluster, and a double star, and then move on from those depending on how quickly we can get them all to view and discuss the specifics according to the badge requirements. This should be a much smaller group than we usually have.

Here are the directions from Causeway and Vets in Metairie. Not sure where your starting point may be.
