On Saturday 21 January from 10am to 12pm a session for eight- to twelve-year-olds will be offered at the Highland Road Park Observatory. Titled "Winter Day", it will be a delightful hodgepodge of astronomical fun. Included will be a take-home listing of all unaided-eye events for the fall that the whole family can use at home. The session's cost is five dollars per in-parish child and six dollars per out-of-parish child. Parents may stay with or leave child.

"Spring Day" was to be the Science Academy session tomorrow. However, HRPO personnel have cancelled that session and removed the registration ability from WebTrac. NOAA has declared a Flash Flood Watch to begin at 1am CDT and to continue through the Science Academy session time. Additionally, the Hazardous Weather Outlook writeup for tomorrow mentions "damaging wind gusts, tornadoes and large hail".
