First, an announcement: The 2021 kickoff of Astronomy Night at Tye Preston Memorial Library was a big hit with 63 in attendance! A donated (Gibbs family) circa 2002 Meade ETX-90EC telescope package was given as a door prize to a very excited winner. We had four telescopes set up in addition to the observatory. A great night!
