2021 Stargazer’s Calendar
Astronomy Event Ahead:
Mark is available for a stargazing evening, a classroom session or an informal interview. We were unavailable for private and public programs last year because of the pandemic. Though asked several times, we turned down all requests for safety. But that has changed. We’ve had our Covid-19 vaccination. And we are looking ahead to offering programs again. Stay tuned to this site.
