A Partial Solar Eclipse

We’re so glad that our weather was fine and that the Carleton Goodhue Observatory had a good turnout to observe our partial solar eclipse on Thursday,  Oct. 23.    Using indirect observing tools to prevent frying our retinas,  these shots were obtained.    EdDSC_2936 DSC_2939 DSC_2944 DSC_2948

Annual Picnic

A good time was had by all

at the annual NESNA picnic,  again held at the Weitz Center.   And again Carleton made a hit with the neighborhood by offering us the assembly room at the Weitz,  PLUS beverages and desserts.    These photos show Grace Clark handling the reception desk,  a view of the nice turnout,  a glimpse of Suzie Nakasian offering people something to think about,   and President Jerri addressing the crowd.   What a nice way to conclude another academic year!      Ed
