It's high summer, the season of star parties, and the chance to show the public the Summer Triangle brightly set in the Milky Way, the radiants of outstanding meteor displays, and brilliant planetary conjunctions with your GLPs. With a little care we can all insure that the public remembers the celestial sights, and not GLP operator ineptitude leading to memorable but unplanned law enforcement interventions at star parties.
The GLP Committee has prepared a poster to remind Society members of best practice and inform the public about GLP safety. The poster is available in two formats. If you have any questions, please contact the chair of the GLP committee at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
