For Division A, please consider using free planetarium software for your laptop to practice finding the require objects on the list provided in the rules. Good free software is available at Stellarium which can be found at http://stellarium.org/ And one more reminder. For Division A, the room at the competition will be DARK and
the students will need a red flashlight. A normal flash light with red plastic over the light works great and is very inexpensive. Students have brought red laser pointers to the competition in the past. Red laser pointers DO NOT WORK and will cause eye damage!!!!!

Please do not get lost getting to the Mount Cuba
