I just wanted to let anybody in the Northwest Indiana area, or willing to drive to the Hoosier State, that there will be many public observations this weekend. First, on Friday, August 13, Dr. Bruce Hrivnak, professor of physics and astronomy at Valparaiso University will be conducting a Perseid's meteor shower observation at Taltree Arboretum. I seen many of Dr. Hrivnak's public talks and observing sessions at VU, and I'm looking forward to seeing him again Friday and talking astronomy.
There is a $5 charge for non-members of the Arboretum. I will be in attendance.
Did I mention that this is a fairly dark site?!?
Also this weekend, the Calumet Astronomical Society is hosting public observations Friday and Saturday nights at the Conway Observatory in Lowell. I will be there Saturday night, weather permitting of course.
