Mars Set to Invade…
On Wednesday, June 23rd after sunset, the planet Mars will cross through the “Beehive” star cluster which is part of the constellation Cancer.
This is just one of the many astronomical events that you might be able to witness depending on the Bortle scale rating for wherever you are. The Bortle scale measures light pollution which causes the night sky to be so bright that fewer stars are visible. Light pollution comes from humans — leaving lights on at night from buildings, spotlights, amusement parks, etc. that flood the sky and overpower the brightness of the stars.
Thank You to Our Volunteers and Graduating Seniors
We have been very fortunate to work with a group of outstanding students who have dedicated many hours of service supporting our mission to promote behavioral health and wellness on our campus. Their support is priceless, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have worked with us, some of whom are graduating after several years of service, and we wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors.
