White House Star Party

There will be a star party this Wednesday, October 7th at the White House.  This is the culmination of a lot of work by a lot of people working for the International Year of Astronomy.  About 20 telescopes will be set up at the White House and students from around DC will attend as well doing hands-on activities and observing.

I am in DC right now doing sidewalk astronomy at night (and maybe a little solar during the day) in support of the WHSP.  Look for me around the Mall or at Meridian Hill Park the next couple of days if you are in DC!  I will be the guy with a telescope.

Any local DC astronomers who want to coordinate something can send me a direct message on twitter (rsparkles).
