    Astronomy Night is back!

    For those who wish to know more about our night sky, related lore or just gazing at the stars.

    Astronomy Night is a one hour 'class' on New Britannia astronomy hosted by Bowen Bloodgood.

    Next event will be at Caer Dracwych. Sunday, Jan 15th at 3:30 NBT (CST).

    Those attending the first events will get a free astrolabe! (While supplies last) Special thanks go to @Mac2 for helping to make this possible.

    Also thanks to @Bow Vale who generously offered to help out. I might still take you up on that offer. ;)

    No problem. Nothing better come up this time, I have been trying to get to one of these events for a while now, but things keep happening in life that stop me from attending.

    I've heard a lot of people say similar things. That's the main reason for the new time. :)

    Thanks.. I look forward to doing more.. and with hopefully less rain. heheh

    We must've had 20 people on that tiny roof! Gave out 15 astrolabes.. hung out for awhile afterwards and generally had a good time. Sky finally cleared up an hour later but only while the sun was out. :p

    The event was very enjoyable. I stayed 3 hours! I should've gotten a screenshot of the large turnout to put in the gallery.

    Thank you @Bowen Bloodgood. And thank you @Mac2 for the astrolabe.
