    Saturday April 21st was Astronomy Day.  The sun cooperated, we had 5 active solar regions.  Over 800 visitors came to the Museum of the Rockies to visit the booths, listen to speakers, teacher workshops, participate in solar viewing and other fun activities.  The event was on the local news and made the paper, too.  Everyday People section of the news paper on Monday had a great article.  The club used the new Sun Funnel for the first time.  What a great tool.  Members decided that they needed to make another one.  Pictures will be added soon.  Thanks to everyone who came to help with our SMAS booths, both solar and lunar.

    Our next event is a SMAS member pot luck on April 28th, where we will get first light on the refurbished 12″ scope.
