    Join the Louisville Astronomical Society at the Parklands of Floyds Fork every SUNday in April except on Easter April 16th from 1-3 PM to view the Sun, our private star, safely though solar telescopes.

    LAS members will be using specially-equipped telescopes with solar filters that allow you to view the sun and sunspots safely. NEVER look at the sun through binoculars or a telescope on your own. Look through ours.

    LAS volunteers will be at the PNC Center Beckley Creek Park on April 30th. Come and learn more on SUNday at the Parklands.

Follow South Beckley Station Road for  about 1.7 miles until you see the Park entrance sign and turn left onto Beckley Creek Parkway.
