Vermont Edition will be focusing on star gazing and astronomy today!
We’re looking at the long history of Stellafane, and how Springfield became a center for amateur astronomy and a pilgrimage site for telescope-makers and stargazers of every stripe.
And we’ll ask: can home-made telescopes and astronomy still capture the imagination in an era of smart phones and a thousand other distractions?
We’re joined by Tom Spirock, member and former Secretary of the Springfield Telescope Makers.
Listen at noon and at seven.
