Peregrine Falcon Viewing & Star Party

The General Motors Astronomy Club will be joining the Warren Peregrine Falcon Group next Thursday, June 14th, for some birdwatching and stargazing. Feel free to bring a chair, binoculars, and a telescope, if you have one. We will be sharing our telescopes to view the birds and then enjoying the night sky afterward, if the weather is nice. Light pollution might be an issue in Warren, but Jupiter should be easily visible after sunset. Hope to see you there!
