Regular Public Observing at the Baker Wetlands Discovery Center takes place after the monthly meetings during the Fall and Spring semesters. See the map below for the site of the Discovery Center in south Lawrence. The AAL meetings will begin at 7PM and finish in time to allow all attendees to take part in the open observing.  Meetings will take place irrespective of the weather conditions and observing begins, weather permitting, after the meetings as soon as it gets dark enough to observe.               

The Facebook page for the Discovery Center can be accessed here.

In addition to telescopes set up by AAL members, we will be utilizing the 14" scope permanently housed at the Discovery Center.  
Come join the fun and enjoy the dark(er) skies south of town.
