    Kissimmee Prairie Astronomy Weekend: June 3-4, 2022.
    We will be at the Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park for the weekend.
    We’ll do a presentation on Friday evening (time to be announced) and have celestial viewing after dark.
    Saturday evening will be the same.
    At this time, to attend, you will have to have a camping reservation. But we’re hoping that this will change by this event date.
    Keep watching for updates.

We “get around” to several different venues and events during the year. We hope to see you at as many of these events as you can come to.
