Pendleton Library explores outer space

Pendleton Library explores outer space with Greg McCauley tomorrow

(Continued)

The organization is based at the Link Observatory in Martinsville, through an agreement with Indiana University. Built in 1937, McCauley said the Goethe Link Observatory boasts the largest wooden dome in the country at an observing facility. It’s also got a pretty awesome 36” Cassegrain telescope. The non-profit hosts educational and viewing events at the observatory.

Also among McCauley’s projects with LOSSC is the establishment of the Young Astronomers Club of America. They have launched their pilot program at Carmel Public Library with kids ages 10 to 16. They get together once a month to explore all things astronomical. McCauley said they hope to grow the program nationally.

Expect Saturday’s multi-media program to last about an hour. He’ll take questions following the presentation. Check out the Link Observatory and Space Science Center webpage at www.linkobservatory.org.
