Westminster Pack 33 Cub Scouts Star Party

On the evening of Saturday August 27th a couple of members of Aldrich Astronomical Society and one member of the Astronomical Society of Southern New England (ASSNE) hosted Westminster Pack 33 Cub Scouts and their families on Jefferson Hill in Hubbardston for a Star Party. Thanks to Aldrich President  Jim Zebrowski and fellow member Bruce DeGraff for bringing their scopes to share their passion for the beauty in the night skies. Also a big thank you to ASSNE President Mark Munkacsy for bringing his 6″ Dobsonian and traveling a good distance from his home in Rhode Island to help with this event.

The cub scouts were very enthusiastic as they looked through telescopes at various targets between the clouds present that night.

I wanted to send out a quick note to thank all of you for putting on such an amazing program for our community!! The kids came back raving about what they saw and learned and how much fun it was. You all did such a great job and really made it fun and educational. My son was super impressed...
