Notes from a Lazy Stargazer

I woke up at 3:00 a.m.. Why? Fate, I guess. I live near the UR campus under the canopy of a primeval forest. Meteor watching from my backyard doesn’t work very well. The UR campus, however, does offer some decent openings onto the night sky. I parked by the practice fields and looked out. Fortunately, I drive a convertible and was able to recline in the comfort of the car and gaze out. Campus lighting pretty well eliminated a quarter of the sky closest to the horizon on the campus side of the car. The rest of the sky was dark enough.

Earth Day Extravaganza: Options Galore

Earth Day will take the River City by storm this April 18. Not one, but three festivals will celebrate and encourage our commitment to environmental stewardship with awesome activities, entertainment and educational opportunities. Sprawling across the city and even into the surrounding counties, you have more options than you can shake a kale smoothie at. Join Enrichmond, Style Weekly, or John Tyler Community College (or all three) for some of the best Earth Day fun to be had.
