Astronomy on Tap Louisville: Kentucky’s Oldest Telescope
April 5 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDTFree
In downtown Louisville lies a large brass astronomical telescope in a really stout wooden box. It once belonged to Msgr. Michael Bouchet, pastor at the Cathedral of the Assumption on 5th St. during the late 19th century. It was made in Louisville by A. C. Schuman. Now, after over 120 years in storage, it is coming back to life! Yes, it still works. It will not be available at this talk, but there will be a lot of pictures! Come hear the latest news with Chris Graney. We will meet at Monnik Beer Co., 1036 E Burnett Ave, Louisville KY 40217 at 7pm in the Upper Room.
