Through a unique program offered by the New Hampshire Astronomical Society, and the generous sponsorship of the Friends of the Rye Public Library, you can now borrow an Orion StarBlast 4.5″ Astro Reflector Telescope.

The telescope checks out for one (1) week, and comes with everything you will need to enjoy a new view of the night sky, including an instruction manual tailored especially for us by the NHAS.

Ask for check-out details at one of our circulation desks, and watch for future NHAS events here at the Library!

stellariumStellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.

It is being used in planetarium projectors. Just set your coordinates and go.
