The Nature Institute is inviting the public to join them for an astronomy event on Thursday evening. The program is a part of the newly formed TNI Astronomy Association and will give participants a chance to observe and record constellations with naturalist Eddie Agha. They will also receive an instructional lesson about the “Great World Wide Star Count” and also learn more about how to join the organization.

The event runs this Thursday from 6:30 pm until 9 pm at outside of the Talahi Lodge located on South Levis Lane in Godfrey. You must make a reservation if you plan to attend and can do so by calling 467-2521.
