“Heavens Above – Faulkes Telescope Live @ the Library,” a free   informational program featuring a “live feed” (weather permitting) from a telescope atop Haleakala, will be conducted at Kahului Public Library on Tuesday, February 21 at 7 p.m. 

Dr. James “J. D.” Armstrong, Maui Technology Education & Outreach Specialist for the Institute of Astronomy, will use the Internet to control where the Faulkes 2-meter telescope points with the help of the audience, share some fantastic sights of deep-sky objects, and discuss other sights in space such as the upcoming Venus Transit in June and what this means to astronomers.  

The “live feed” will be projected onto a movie screen set up inside the library.  Dr. Armstrong will also explain what the telescope “sees” and how it works.        

Those who are interested in attending this two-hour program are advised that Kahului Public Library will close at 8 p.m. on February 21, and no one will be admitted after the library closes.  The program is suitable for ages 7 and older.  Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.      

Contact the library as soon as possible if a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is needed.

Kahului Public Library is located at 90 School Street.  For more information, please call the Library at (808) 873-3097.
