To celebrate this year’s Summer Reading Program theme, A Universe of Stories, the library will be purchasing a community telescope that will be available to check out after this program.

Tonight Rick Bates and Claudio Veliz from SoVerA (the Southern Vermont Astronomy group) will discuss of how lenses work and how they function in the design of various types of telescopes. This will give attendees an idea of the pros and cons of various styles of telescope. Then they will discuss a few easy viewing items in the summer/fall sky. And if the weather cooperates, we will go out into the field and look at the moon. https://sovera.org/
