UPDATE: Thanks to an Irving S. Gilmore Foundation grant, the Kalamazoo Astronomical Society has now funded 88 percent of the project.

The Kalamazoo Astronomical Society is raising money for a robotic telescope that will broadcast images of the night sky from one of the best star gazing sites in the country. 

Saturday afternoon, Paw Paw Cub Scouts Troop 169 visited the WMUK studios on the Western Michigan University campus.  They learned about broadcasting on the way to finishing their Tiger Badges.
