July Astronomy

Saturday July 1, 9pm
Join our team of astronomers as we gaze through the telescopes at the mountains, mare and craters of the crescent moon. We will also view Saturn and its magnificent rings and Jupiter with its moons and atmospheric bands. Our astronomers will also point out and discuss the Milky Way and summer constellations.

Note: Families are invited to a special preview in the Learning Center classroom at 8:30. This mini-lesson will give participants, especially children, a better understanding of what they will be viewing out on the hill.

Please bring a flashlight for the walk from the parking area to the observatory, and binoculars, if you have them.
