Society Observing @ Arlington Village Hall
Mar 29 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Society Observing

This is the event for members to observe from a darker sky area. We generally have a short presentation on what should be observable and may talk about astronomical news items – then if it is clear we observe from outside the Hall. Teas and coffees are available at a small price. Wrap up because it can get cold.
