Physics 102: Astronomy of the Planets 2008

Fall Activities

NOTE! There will be five "optional" activities outside of normal class time this semester. You are required to attend at least three (an excellent student attends more). Four of these activities take place on campus. The other one is an observing session that takes place 90 minutes away from campus in Joshua Tree National Park. The schedule of nights is found here and in the syllabus.

If you cannot make at least three of these activities, DROP THIS COURSE NOW!
