NO Astronomical Observing at Fishcreek - Friday 6/05/2009
Regardless of weather, we will NOT be meeting behind Fishcreek Elementary School tonight due to prior commitments by all the telescope owner/operators you've come to know. Most of us are heavily involved with the ACA (Astronomy Club of Akron, Inc) and are committed to setting up telescopes tonight for Camp CHOPS (Children's Hospital Oncology Patients & Staff).
This event at Camp Christopher is scheduled months ahead and we look forward to showing the campers the wonders of the universe.
Camp Christopher is located at the intersection
of Ira Rd and N Hametown Rd in Bath, OH.
