Following the lecture, telescopes will be set-up for public use outside the McNally Building for a sidewalk astronomy session weather permitting. One lucky attendee will go home with brand new Celestron PowerSeeker telescope, valued at over $200. There will also be a guided tour of the Burke-Gaffney Observatory (limited numbers) and everyone attending the lecture will receive a free prize draw ticket.
