I am a member of Milwaukee Astronomical Society (MAS) in New Berlin and an occasional visitor to the Urban Stargazers. You are invited to an MAS open house / public viewing session next week on the evening of Friday, April 23. Whatever the weather, there will be an indoor presentation on how telling time relates to astronomical movements and a tour of the grounds. If you've never been out to the site, it's worth a visit. This Friday April 16 will be the MAS monthly meeting. It's at the UW-M physics building across the hall from the planetarium. Business at 7, presentation at 8. The speaker is a MAS member Dave Borchardt on astrophotography. This coming Sunday, April 18, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel will feature the MAS in a story about national astronomy week. It might appear only in the Waukesha section. Also, MAS has an 18" Obsession dob. Dave Kriege is a long time member of MAS and another long time MAS member left money to buy it when he died. I use it often (just last night in fact - Jupiter was outstanding!) and it's a real joy to look through. There are lots of experienced users who would be glad to talk about it.
