TVS Presents

   You are invited to an evening of astronomical delights slated for later appearances in 2000. Club president Dave Anderson will present highlights from his popular "What's Up" column. Gert Gottschalk will challenge us with deep-sky showpiece objects and other specialized celestial viewing opportunities. Chuck Grant has agreed to inform us of "long-range goofy things" such as triple shadow transits of Jupiter, the occultation of a star by the Moon during a total lunar eclipse, and other such oddities. Bring your notebook, a brand new pen, and all your questions about astronomy in the coming year.

Since January 15, 2000 we estimate that this page has been downloaded about times.
