ECU ASTRONOMY VIEWING THURSDAY TO LOOK AT CONSTELLATIONS

The first astronomy viewing of East Central University's academic year will be from 8 to 9 p.m. Thursday [SEPT. 30]. Participants should be at the northwest corner of the Physical and Environmental Sciences Building in time to leave at 8 p.m. to drive to the country to view constellations.

The ECU Astronomy Club also has scheduled viewings at the ECU observatory on Oct. 7 [THURSDAY] of Jupiter, the Andromeda Galaxy and Uranus; on Oct. 12, the first quarter moon and Jupiter; and Nov. 2, the Andromeda Galaxy and Jupiter.

Those viewings will be from 8:30 to 9 p.m. at the ECU Observatory adjacent to ECU's Physical Plant parking lot, northeast of the football stadium. A walk 100 feet up a hill is necessary to get to the telescopes. All viewings are open to the public but will be cancelled if it is raining or cloudy.

For more information, contact Dr. Carl Rutledge at 559-5392 or crutledge@mac.com.
