No meetups per se, unless several students express a strong interest. So far you are the only who has expressed any interest. However, there will be further opportunities to perhaps look through a scope. The next is October 12 at Chamberlin Observatory. There should be others as well, but the powers that be haven't scheduled any yet. If you feel the need to have the meetup as envisioned for August 27, I'd be happy to do that as well if there are other students interested. That would not include any telescopic viewing, just pointing things out.

I have decided to offer a completely optional outdoor introduction to the night sky, tentatively this Tuesday (27 Aug.) evening at 8 p.m. This will not be on the Auraria campus, but at Observatory Park in South Denver. (http://is.gd/ynmyWt). This will be short, about an hour, and will not include telescopes. I'll just be there to help students get their bearings under the night sky. This is still Denver, of course, so the sky will not be like up in the mountains. But Observatory Park is dark enough to see a few things. Again, this is not required and carries no credit, but it could be useful to you.

(The outdoor observing depends entirely on weather. If I decide that the weather is too poor to make this work, I will send out an email by 7 p.m. If Tuesday does not work, we will reschedule for Wednesday.)
