Eastern Iowa Star Party
« on: March 15, 2018, 04:24:52 PM »
The 2018 Eastern Iowa Star Party. 
The 2018 Eastern Iowa Star Party will be held at the St. Ambrose University Menke Observatory in Dixon, Iowa from Sept 7th through 9th. The observatory, along with its piered scopes has a climate controlled classroom as well as women's and men's restrooms.
The observatory is located at the Wapsi River Educational and Environmental Center, so nature hikes and bird seeing abound... there is also an antique truck museum near by!
The Dixon Legion serves great burgers and meals and is only 5 minutes or so from the site. Other restaurant options are near by. Ask about lodging, but generally a small tent on field works fine.

Guest speakers: Dr. Paul Sipiera, Dr. Jennifer Anderson, Comet Hunter David Levey.
Grand Prize: 102mm Explore Scientific Carbon Fiber Triplet.
Registration is limited to about 50 on the observation field and about 50 in the lecture room, so hurry
email for registration form:email address is PwrHsePro@aol.com
