Hi all.

The LVHS Astronomy Club is offering many community presentation/telescope observation nights leading up to the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse (very rare event as you most likely know).

Students and adults will be presenting on a variety of astronomy topics (some solar eclipse related, others not), each presentation followed by (if not cloudy) a community observation on the football field using our club's telescope equipment.

Hope to see you at some of our events!
