LVHS Astronomy Club with another great presentation this week
Coverage of the August 2017 solar eclipse and related events is brought to you by Shoshone Rose Casino and Hotel.
Preparation for the August 21st Solar Eclipse has everyone looking to the sky. What a better way to prepare for this celestial event than to support local youth and learn more about the skies above it.
This Friday (June 23, 2017) at 6 pm in the LVHS auditorium, the LVHS Astronomy Club will sponsor a guest presentation by former NASA engineer Michael Rondot.
Michael is a frequent helper with the club and he is the dad of one of our club members, He’s been very in sharing his expertise and time with the club and community. This is a repeat presentation (as we wanted more people to have the opportunity to experience this) on his career with NASA, followed by what NASA is up to along the lines of getting people to Mars.

After the presentation, the club will lead telescope observations out on the football field (pending clear skies of course).
These presentations are offered to the community free of charge. The goals are to raise awareness of the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse, increase interest in astronomy in general, and to educate the community on a variety of astronomy-related topics.
