Stargazing, fundraiser scheduled May 2 at UA

Citizen Staff Report

Stargazers are invited to attend a star party and fundraiser hosted by astronomer and author David Levy next month.

Levy’s nonprofit organization, the Sharing the Sky Foundation, is dedicated to getting young people interested in the night sky and will be accepting donations during the party, which will run from 3:30 to 10 p.m. May 2. The party will be on the Mall at the University of Arizona next to the Flandrau Science Center, 1601 E. University Blvd.

Telescopes with special filters will be set up to view the sun during the daylight hours. The moon and Saturn, along with distant stars and far-off galaxies, will be viewed after dark.

Admission is free but donations are encouraged. For more information, go to www.sharingthesky.org.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
