Next Open House
As we cruise around Facebook, we come across many virtual events taking place locally, nationally, and even internationally. We share those notifications on our FB page. You do not need to be on FB! Just check out the Social Networks box -->
and you can scroll through the postings there.
You can now subscribe to get occasional emails (~1/month) about UMD Observatory programs, local astro events, and interesting observing opportunities. The email is text-based... just a very informal newsletter that we will send out when we have several items of interest.
