9/26 – Meeting and Star Party TONIGHT ⭐️

Rather than a traditional “speaker meeting”, we’ll be hearing about the research our club members are doing! Come support presenters and hear about research being done at Ohio State and elsewhere! 💫
If you’re a presenter, you received a link to a google slides presentation to which you should copy your slides (if you have them) asap! 📋📈
meeting location: PRB 1080 (Smith Seminar Room)
Josh Kingsbury will be hosting star parties on the Smith Lab observation deck (Smith Lab rooftop) Thursday (9/29) and Friday (9/30), weather permitting ✨
Sunset is at 7:15pm, so he’ll begin setup by 6:30 (which is during the meeting). If anyone wants to come help setup at 6:30pm they are welcome to. You can go help Josh at 7:00 after the meeting. It will still be light enough for telescope setup! 🔭
The weather was looking perfect earlier in the week for both days; Thursday is still looking good; Friday is looking iffy now but still planned for now! 🌤
