August 1st is our annual auction for the Naperville Astronomical Association. Each year our members or the surrounding community donates items that we auction off. Many items are astronomy related, though sometimes there are some cookies and brownies up for bid.
The auction is located in the Naperville Municipal Center basement, Meeting Room B.
I know for a fact that this year we have a very nice 8" dobsonian telescope which would be great for the beginner or the experienced amateur astronomer. If one of our events has inspired you to think about buying a telescope, stop up and see if you can pick up this beauty for cheap.
If anyone reading this has anything they would like to donate, be it the astronomical variety or the food variety, we will be accepting your gracious donations up until the auction starts.
This is a cash auction, so bring a pocket full of $20 and see what you can walk away with.
Proceeds from this auction help with the club's operational costs as well as improvement projects we have at our observatories.
