Next Sky Program on Monday, May 14th

Rangeley, Maine — The Wilhelm Reich Museum’s monthly Sky Program will be on Monday May 14th at museum’s Conference Center on Dodge Pond Road in Rangeley at dusk. We will only have the program if the sky is clear and we can get outside and view the planets and stars with the telescopes.  

On April 18th the sky was mostly cloudy at 4 p.m. so we called off the program and went home.  At 6 p.m. it was  clear as a bell out. If we had a contact list we could have e-mailed of called everyone on it,  come back over and had an awesome program. Since it is so hard to predict the weather accuratly in this area we would like to start a contact network of people who are interested in attending or helping with the program.  That list will not be shared with anyone. Send your e-mail address or phone number to wreich@rangeley.org or call us at 207-864-3443 with your contact information. Like us on The Wilhelm Reich Museum’s face book page. Rangeley Radio Station WRGY 90.5 FM,  the Rangeley School and the Rangeley Chamber of Commerce, has been very helpful in getting the Sky Program information out there. We sincerely appreciate that help.
 
Cookies, coffee and hot chocolate will be served.
 
The “Sky Program” has been created for all ages as part of the museum’s Natural Science Program and is free of charge.
