Dr. Arthur Schneider, Professor Emeritus at Amarillo College, will present a program on the night sky of the Texas Panhandle.  A 16" reflecting telescope will be provided, which will allow participants to observe star clusters, planets, and galaxies. 

Participants should wear outdoor clothing and bring lawn chairs and a blanket.  The spring evenings can be chilly in the Texas Panhandle. All activities are free and open to the public. In case of inclement or cloudy weather, the event will be canceled.
