If you’re a member of KRCC and you enjoy stargazing, consider yourself invited to a star party we’re throwing for our members here at the station on Friday, April 12th. From about 7:30 to 10:30PM that evening members of the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society will have their telescopes set up in our backyard here at 912 N. Weber. This’ll be your chance to get up close and personal with the night sky wonders and our chance to say thank you for all your wonderful support. So mark your calendars for a KRCC member star party on Friday, April 12th. Saturday the 13th is our backup evening if the weather doesn’t co-operate on the 12th.
