A national park ranger, Jeff Zylland, is putting together a public observing night on Wednesday, August 8 at Sunrise on Mount Rainier, which has the highest altitude reachable by road and very dark skies. Jeff is looking for help from local astronomers. Anyone who is interested and able to help (with or without telescope) should contact Vasuki Seshadri at vasuki@alum.rit.edu and/or Jeff directly at jeffrey zylland@nps.gov Jeff is very knowledgeable about astronomy, but these public viewing nights usually draw a large crowd. He could use some assistance.
