You will be able to look at the stars with a professional telescope in a group setting a little later this week.  The Nature Institute in Godfrey is teaming up with Hayner Public Library District to host a series of events the third Thursday of each month, piggybacking on the astronomy events hosted by TNI’s Naturalist to the Stars, Eddie Agha.

Hayner Executive Director Bernadette Duvernoy tells The Big Z this partnership is an extension of the newly launched telescope “checkout” program.

This “checkout” program began in New Hampshire and has been successful beyond the expectations of organizers.  Again, the number to reserve your spot at the workshop is 1-800-613-3163.
