The location is the plaza outside the downtown Houston public library. The library has an underground parking garage on Lamar and there is street parking on Lamar and McKinney  and on nearby Smith Street. There is also a handy Google Map.

There will be telescopes and solar scopes on hand for observations of the sun and moon which will be at first quarter. Come on out and help create a tradition of sidewalk astronomy in downtown Houston.
