Status updated on Friday June 1, 2018 at 5:55 PM:

Thick horizon to horizon clouds plus threat of thunderstorms tonight
have forced us to
CANCEL tonight's observing event for these children.
To our recollection, this is only the 2nd cancellation in our long history
of doing these events for the patients from Akron Children's Hospital.

Important Outreach Event:

Camp Ed Bear
(formerly known as Camp CHOPS*)
Camp Carl**

Come out to show the children the wonders
of the night sky - you'll be glad you did!

Exact coordinates of observing field (for auto GPS units or computerized telescopes):
N41.1180  W81.0999  =>   N41 07' 05"  W81 06'

We'll arrive by 8:00pm and set up telescopes in the field to the left of the main camp access driveway off Calvin Rd.  Campers will arrive in small groups throughout the evening.  This is the first of two events we conduct yearly for children from Children's Hospital at camps around the area.
