The Lake Afton Public Observatory, in conjunction with the Kansas Astronomical Observers, is inviting people who would like pointers on how to use their telescope to attend one of its "Bring Your Own Telescope" programs.
The program is at 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19.
The observatory is also presenting a special program on the star lore of Native Americans, called "Native American Storytelling." Visitors will sit around a campfire and listen to how the sky affected Native American life.
The program is at 9:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19, and at 8:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16.
For more information on both events, go to http://webs.wichita.edu/lapo/.
