Help observed

To the Journal editor:

I would like to thank the Marquette Board of Light and Power and the city of Marquette for their cooperation for the International Moon Observe held at Mattson Park last Friday night.

They arranged to have the lights turned off at the park from 8-11 p.m. This enabled the public to observe not only the moon but some deep space object through telescopes.

The attendees were also able to witness the park without light pollution.

Also thank you to The Mining Journal for the press coverage.

Its nice to live in a community where you can get such great cooperation at short notice.
