CANCELLED DUE TO HURRICANE HARVEY
We’ve been invited once again to Burton, TX for the Camp CLIFF retreat weekend. For those who haven’t heard of this, it’s a getaway for children fighting cancer and their families, and it gives them an opportunity to do fun things and not think about any of the serious things they have to deal with for a weekend. In years past, we’ve brought our telescopes out for the campers to look through for about an hour, and it’s always been a great time under the dark skies in Burton, TX. This is a relatively short event and a long drive from central Houston, but the camp hosts have given us an opportunity to stay later to do any observing we want to do once the campers retreat to their cabins for the night. Even with the lights on, the Milky Way is visible from the field we set up in.
