Stevens Memorial Library Backyard Astronomy

Attention astronomy lovers in the Ashburnham area: Tomorrow night, Wednesday September 7, 2016, at 7pm we invite you to join us for a special Library Telescope Program at the Stevens Memorial Library (20 Memorial Drive, Ashburnham) “for a free, family-friendly demonstration of the new library telescope. If weather permits, we will then move outside for observation using an easy technique called star-hopping. Learn how to watch the skies from your own backyard!”

This telescope was funded by donations to the Stevens Memorial Library in memory of Robert Leahy. It will be maintained by the Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc. as part of their Adopt a Library Program. Space-themed door prizes will be offered!
