Skyscrapers meets at Seagrave Observatory

SCITUATE – Skyscrapers Inc., the Amateur Astronomical Society of Rhode Island, will hold its monthly meeting on Friday, June 7, at 7 p.m., at Seagrave Memorial Observatory, 47 Peep Toad Road, North Scituate.

The topic of the meeting will be “Observing on top of the mountain: Kitt Peak.”

Ian Dell’Antonio, a professor of physics at Brown University, has recently returned from Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona. He will show the many telescopes on the mountain, introduce the group to the equipment he used, and discuss the research he has been performing.

After his talk, the telescopes will be available for observing, if skies are clear.
