Set your sights to the stars on Wednesday, May 17th, as we welcome Barry Peckham of Litebox Telescopes to the Brownell Library for an exploration of the nighttime sky.

Peckham will be bringing one of his own, custom-made telescopes to display and discuss, and will share insights into the mechanics and construction of his ultra-portable, state-of-the-art starware.

Come to learn all about Newtonian optical systems and astronomy, and stay for a view of Jupiter from the commons, weather permitting.

As always, this event is free and open to all.
