What's Up in the Night Sky

We would like to thank the NH Astronomical Society for last night's stellar presentation, "What's Up in the Night Sky" and for the Skywatch that was held outside the library after the presentation. A special thank you goes to the volunteers who made this program possible--presenter, Ted Blank, and the people who brought their telescopes for all to enjoy.  We had a great time.
Also, I wanted to mention the downloadable program, Stellarium, that Ted highly recommended for all would be astronomers.  Stellarium is a planetarium software that shows a real time, realistic sky in 3D.  It looks exactly like what you would see with the naked eye, binoculars or a small telescope.  It's easy to use, and free!  For more information an instructions, visit the website: http://www.stellarium.org/
