September 2001

The University Lowbrow Astronomers is a club of Astronomy enthusiasts which meets on the third Friday of each month in the University of Michigan's Physics and Astronomy building (Dennison Hall, Room 130 or 807).  Meetings begin at 7:30 PM and are open to the public.  Public star parties are held twice a month at the University's Peach Mountain Observatory on North Territorial Road (1.1 miles west of Dexter-Pinkney Road; further directions at the end of the newsletter) on Saturdays before and after the new Moon.  The party may be canceled if it's cloudy or very cold at sunset.  For further information call (313) 480-4514.
