2004 Poster Calendar

For the second year in a row, the Institute for Astronomy will send poster calendars to public and private schools throughout Hawaii. In addition, the calendars will be the premium offered to new and renewing members of the Friends of Hawaii Astronomy who have made their gifts within the July 1 to December 31, 2003 period.
