Lake Afton Public Observatory is holding three "Bring Your Own Telescope" programs designed to help people who own a telescope, or want to own one, better learn how to use them.

The programs, which are free to the public, will be held on the observing pad north of the observatory building. Members of the Kansas Astronomical Observers will be there assisting participants.

Times and dates for the program:

  • 9 p.m. Friday, June 17
  • 9 p.m. Friday, July 15
  • 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19

For more information, call (316) 978-7827 (WSU-STAR) or go to http://webs.wichita.edu/lapo.

The Lake Afton Public Observatory is operated by the Fairmount Center for Science and Mathematics Education, a part of the Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Science at Wichita State University.
