Astronomy enthusiasts from around the area and, perhaps, the country, could flock to Wabash County in the near future to take advantage of a project planned by the Wabash County Astronomical Society.


Society representative Dr. John Levine discussed the group’s plans – dubbed the Mississinewa Sky Observatory -- with the Wabash City Council at its Feb. 25 meeting. He presented a brief film helping to illustrate what the group hopes to do.
