Thank you so much for this award and article! We at SLAS enjoy showing the night sky to people, and all are welcome at the Planetarium viewings. If you cannot make it on one of the Friday evenings to the Planetarium, we also gather at Francis Park monthly on the Wednesday evening near the First Quarter Moon. Next Francis Park viewing is Oct. 17. See you there (unless it's cloudy)!

It is also worth noting that along with the free public telescope viewing, the Planetarium offers a free Sky Tonight show inside, regardless of the weather.
Thank you for the article and publicity. It probably should be noted that the St. Louis Astronomical Society volunteers set up their own personal equipment for these events.
