Looking forward to August!

June 28, 2016

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us so far!  We're almost halfway to our goal!  We extended our fundraising window by 2 weeks so there is still time to support the US Olympiad team!

At MIT, we have been preparing curriculum for the training camp.  Observatory manager Tim Brothers and a team of undergraduates have been working on all the telescopes at Wallace Observatory, to get them ready for the training camp and the fall observing class!

Please watch our new video - and share our Crowdfund campaign with your friends! 

For stargazers out there, something to look forward to:  coming up in early August there will be a very nice conjunction of Jupiter, Mercury, and Venus low in the western sky just after sunset!
