Busiest Weekend Ever?

The 100 Hours of Astronomy is underway. Click on over to their website to find a star party in your area. UPDATE From the 100 Hours of Astronomy folks: "We are currently experiencing greater than anticipated load on the web server - we are currently adding more capacity. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience."

In the San Diego area there will be a star party (weather permitting) at Mira Costa College at 8 p.m. on April 3 & 4. Be sure to check it out.

Remember that the Around the World in 80 Telescopes live webcast event begins Friday morning at 2 a.m. Pacific and runs until 2 a.m. Saturday morning. You can watch at the 100 Hours of Astronomy website and on I'll be in on at 1:40 a.m. Saturday morning. I'll be looking to see if you are watching.

If that wasn't enough Tours of the Hale Telescope resume this weekend and the San Diego Science Festival's Expo Day is Saturday from 10:30 a.m. - 6 p.m. in San Diego's Balboa Park. Stop on by and I'll show you the Sun through a telescope!
