Seagrave Observatory hosts Astronomy Day May 10

SCITUATE - Seagrave Memorial Observatory, 47 Peeptoad Road, will host Astronomy Day on Saturday, May 10, from 3 to 6 p.m. This event will be held rain or shine.

Skyscrapers, Inc., the Amateur Astronomical Society of Rhode Island, will be opening its doors to introduce you to the basics of telescope observation. You will learn how telescopes work and how to use them, and will be shown some of the deep-sky and neighboring objects to find.

Do you already have a telescope, and are having a problem with it? Bring it along, and one of the Skyscraper members will give you one-on-one instruction on it.

Due to the size of the property, registration is limited to 40 people.

Suggested donation is $5. Pre-registration is required. To register, contact Robert_Horton@brown.edu .
