It’s natural to be curious about the universe. Whether we casually peer through our living room window to observe the moon, or camp out in a remote area to view the stars, we have a strong impetus to connect with the world above us.

In addition, the coordinates used to pinpoint celestial objects seem as though they have been written in ancient Greek … [Read more...] about Stargazing with the Miami Valley Astronomical Society

Nightlife downtown, particularly in areas like the Oregon District, is lively and vibrant. These small yet noticeable changes are the direct result of the individual and collective efforts of many people who, despite the sluggish economy, believe in the potential of Dayton; those people are working to launch business and social initiatives that revitalize neighborhoods, spur economic growth and keep people in … [Read more...] about Change in Dayton is happening!
Serving the YPs who Serve It's the largest single site employer in the whole state. Its history has been witness to early Wright Brothers test flights and a military installation that dates to World War I. It's an obvious asset to the region for the Air Force Museum (fingers crossed for the shuttle) as well as cutting-edge technical, aerospace, and research advances. I have sung the praises of the Base and understood its major importance in both the economic viability of our region and for aerospace technology worldwide (you can thank my engineering husband who just broke a … [Read more...] about YPs at the Base – Serving those who serve
