The Mahoning Valley Astronomical Society (MVAS) has been offering help and advice the past few years to telescope owners. So You Bought a Telescope takes place on Saturday, January 19. People are invited to bring their new scopes (and ones that have been gathering dust) and have one-on-one time with the MVAS experts. Program will be held from 1-3pm. Drop in anytime during the two hours.
Limited street parking is available on Lincoln, Phelps, Hazel, and Wood Streets. Parking is also available in the Wick Ave. parking deck (M1) for a fee of $5.00, or free with a YSU parking permit. Visitors should park on the 4th floor of the deck and use the pedestrian bridge to campus. From the campus end of the pedestrian bridge, turn left as you pass the library and use the sidewalk to the Ward Beecher Planetarium. There is a small handicap lot located between Jones Hall & Ward Beecher Hall.
