Families Invited to Celebrate Employee’s Legacy at McCormick Observatory
Heidi Winter, who passed in 2012, was the executive secretary to the Director of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. Prior to that, she served as an administrator in the Dean's Office of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Virginia. She was one of the first Friends of the McCormick Observatory and it is in her memory that a special event has been planned.
On Friday, Nov. 29, from 7 to 9 p.m., the first ever “Heidi’s Night at McCormick Observatory” will be held. Students in grades four through 12 and their families can tour the night sky, looking through the 26-inch telescope as well as a number of smaller telescopes at the observatory. Please contact Charlottesville Astrological Society President Steve Layman at firstname.lastname@example.org to register. More information can be found on the Charlottesville Astrological Society’s website.
