February Astronomy

Saturday, February 1, 6 p.m.
Please join our wonderful team of volunteer astronomers as you look through our telescopes at the Moon’s mountains, craters, and mare (seas), majestic Jupiter with its moons, and Saturn’s beautiful rings. Then view some carbon and double stars as Winter constellations are be pointed out along with the starry Milky Way.

Participants should park near the Learning Center and bring a flashlight for the walk to the observatory.

Please note: Families are invited to a special preview in the Learning Center classroom at 5:30pm. This will give participants, especially children, a better understanding of what they will be viewing out on the hill.

    $4 per New Pond Farm member ($16 max. per member family) or $6 per non-member ($24 max. per non-member family)
