August 4, 2018, 10 am to noon: The MSRO Commission is sponsoring a get-together at the Wilderness Branch of the Orange County Library at 6421 Flat Run Road in Locust Grove, VA, to introduce the launch of the MSRO Training Program. The MSRO is an advanced, state-of-the-art small telescope observatory that can be remotely operated over the Internet from your home computer.
The program is free to current members of the Rappahannock Astronomy Club (RAC) (RAClub.org) and to new members who join to take advantage of this training opportunity. The meet-and-greet will allow prospective students to find out more about the training, which will start on Saturday, September 1. The training will be given by MSRO Director, Dr. Myron Wasiuta, and MSRO Assistant Director, Jerry Hubbell, and will consist of two Saturday sessions, each lasting 5 hours, including a lunch break.
