Arrive early to learn about the speed of light through an interactive model of our solar system! The program will run 8:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. followed by skygazing. Each month volunteers from the Northern Colorado Astronomical Society provide telescopes for your viewing pleasure and share their knowledge about stars, planets, galaxies, and more. Dress warmly and bring a blanket or chair to sit on. Meet in the parking lot off Carpenter Road. Free, registration required. For weather updates, visit the NCAS website at www.NoCoAstro.org.

My husband and I have raised our five daughters in the FoCo community - enjoying countless library, museum, and outdoor adventures. As a home-schooler, teacher, traveler, and now a volunteer with FoCoMoD and the Natural Areas, I enjoy maintaining an enthusiastic curiosity and love of the world around me.
