Instead of a regular club meeting, we will have our annual holiday gathering for club members.


The Prairie Astronomy Club will offer its annual free session: “How to Use Your Telescope” at Hyde Observatory, Tuesday evening January 30th at 7:30 p.m. Do you own a telescope and need help getting started using it? The Prairie Astronomy Club would like to help. If you own a telescope and need some hands-on assistance, or are just interested and want to learn more, stop by for this free session.
