HAL's new Solar System Walk at Alpha Ridge Park is such a success that the relatively expensive, full-color solar system walk brochures are going fast. While users of the walk will always be welcome to take home the paper brochures, reuse is now being encouraged by adding a recycle box at the end of the walk plus some new signage.
One of the signs includes a QR code that lets users download and view the brochure on their smart phones. This brochure is also directly available for viewing, downloading, and/or printing on this website at : https://howardastro.org/solarsystemwalk.php or as a clickable link under the "HAL Info" dropdown menu above.
The June members only star party will be held at dusk at Alpha Ridge Park on Saturday, June 24th. Everyone of this year's members star parties has been clouded out. Hopefully, we can reverse the trend this month! Bob Provine will host.
Since July 4th is on a Tuesday, many businesses are giving their employees a four day weekend by also making Monday part of the holiday. Due to this, the HAL planning meeting will NOT be held on Monday, July 3rd. Check back later for a reschedule date.
