Make sure you park in the upper parking lot behind Brainerd (United Methodist) Church at 4315 Brainerd Rd, Chattanooga. Walk up the small access road to the cemetery and the back door to the Observatory. Much better than negotiating the dark trail through the woods from Tuxedo Ave!

BAS Programs and Meetings are free and open to anyone who has an interest in the sky! All are welcome!
