SAU to organize star-viewing party


St. Ambrose University in Davenport will host a Star Party at the S. G. Menke Observatory outside Dixon Saturday, June 13, at sunset. On-site 12- and 14-inch telescopes will be available for sky viewing; visitors are welcome to bring smaller telescopes as well. The event is free and open to the public.

For more information, contact Dr. Robert Mitchell at (563) 333-6141. On the day of the event, the same number may be called for a recorded message that will either confirm the event or report a weather-related cancellation. Go to and follow the links to the Menke Observatory for maps and driving directions.
