Can you find the

chicken hatch? 

 

How about the safe that was

once stolen from the store? 

Where is the "old-fashioned

theft deterrent?" How did the

shopkeeper get items off the

top shelf? 

 

 The answers to these

questions and some old-timey

bargains can be found with a

visit to the Original Mast Store

and Mast Store Annex

in Valle Crucis.

 

Come out and discover

a little history in a

fun and engaging way.

Dan's Starry Skies

Latest Update: June 13, 2014


Saturn and its rings (NASA)
June places Mars and Saturn along the arc of the ecliptic during the early evening. Saturn is always a fine view in a small telescope and even the smallest will show some of the rings and perhaps a few of its moons. Saturn has more moons visible in a modest (4-8 inch diameter) telescope that Jupiter but they are fainter. Jupiter is lost in the west now until we catch it in the dawn sky in a few months.

Saturn and Mars, looking south about 11pm.
