Save Your Stuff: Empty Lockers
Remove All Personal Property Including Your Lock by Deadline

Men's & Women's Locker Rooms
Personal Locks and Locker Contents that Remain After the Deadline Will Be Discarded

Empty your Foothill College locker (if you use one) by Friday, June 26. Beginning Monday, June 29, lockers will be available for students who are enrolled in Summer Session physical education activity courses. All lockers must be emptied by Friday, Aug. 27, at which time remaining locks will be cut and lockers' contents will be emptied. No items will be held for pick up.

Be certain to remove all personal property, including clothing, equipment, electronics, toiletries, medications and any other personal items, as well as your padlock or combination lock. Lockers are available each quarter but must be cleared out and locks removed on or before the last day of your class.

 The Foothill-De Anza Community College District (hereafter known as "district") does not promise, guarantee or warrant the safety of your property stored in lockers. Do not store personal property worth more than $50 in the locker. Provide your own lock to secure property in the locker at all times until you are required to remove the lock and contents, as the district will not undertake to provide security or safekeeping. If you fail to remove the lock and locker contents on or before the last day of class, the district will treat the lock and locker contents as intentionally abandoned property worth less than $100, and will remove the lock and discard the lock and the locker contents without providing any notice to you.

Free Astronomy Guest Lecture: 100 Years of Einstein’s Relativity
Part of the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series

Smithwick Theatre (Room 1001)
Admission is free; purchase required parking permit for $3 from dispensers in any student lot.

As part of the 15th annual Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture SeriesJeffrey Bennett, Ph.D., a noted astronomer from the University of Colorado, will discuss 100 Years of Einstein’s Relativity (and How it Underlies our Modern Understanding of the Universe), an illustrated, non-technical lecture Wednesday, May 6, at 7 p.m. in the Smithwick Theatre at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills.

Bennett is the author of college-level textbooks in astronomy, astrobiology, mathematics and statistics, as well as the popular books What is Relativity? and Beyond UFOs: The Search for Extraterrestrial Life. His five books for children are currently aboard the International Space Station, and being read to kids on Earth by astronauts during “Story Time from Space.”  He holds a doctorate from the University of Colorado, and has been a visiting senior scientist at NASA headquarters.

Bennett will sign copies of What is Relativity? after the lecture in Appreciation Hall (Room 1501).

Special Event
April 25, 2015   10 a.m. to noon and again from 8 to 11 p.m.
Astronomy Day Is April 25
Great Activity for Kids, Parents & Grandparents

Foothill College Observatory (adjacent to Lot 4)
Admission is free; parking is $3. Purchase required parking permit from dispensers in any student lot.

Silicon Valley kids and their families are invited to Astronomy Day activities Saturday, April 25, at the Foothill College Observatory in Los Altos Hills. Daylight observing is set for 10 a.m. to noon and evening observing runs from 8 to 11 p.m. Admission is free; parking is $3.

Presented by volunteers from the Peninsula Astronomical Society (PAS), Astronomy Day gives visitors of all ages the opportunity to view the wonders of the universe through the observatory's large astronomical telescopes. The observatory houses a 16-inch computer-controlled Schmidt-Cassegrain reflector and hydrogen-alpha solar telescope. In addition, PAS volunteers set up their personal telescopes to add to the number of viewing stations. 

An international grassroots movement designed to share the joy of astronomy with the public, Astronomy Day gives community members who may have never looked through a telescope an opportunity to see celestial bodies first hand and get answers to astronomy-related questions.

The Peninsula Astronomical Society is a group of some 200 Bay Area astronomy enthusiasts of all ages and backgrounds. Some members are professionally trained in astronomy, others are just starting and have never looked through a telescope before. As part of its commitment to bringing astronomy to the public, PAS operates the Foothill College Observatory. The observatory is staffed by PAS members who volunteer to conduct regularly scheduled public programs. The observatory is closed when it is cloudy.

Friday Evening Public Viewing—9 to 11 p.m. The choice of targets for evening viewing depends on the season and what objects are currently visible. Presented every clear Friday.

Saturday Solar Viewing—10 a.m. to noon. See spectacular views of two different layers of the sun through white-light and hydrogen-alpha 0.6 Angstrom filters. Presented every clear Saturday.

Parking Lot 4 provides best access to the campus observatory. Purchase a required parking permit from dispensers in any student parking lot. Dispensers accept one-dollar bills and quarters; bring exact change.
