July Astronomy

Saturday July 6, 9pm
Please join the wonderful team of volunteer astronomers from Ridgefield’s Discovery Center and learn why NASA wanted a waxing crescent moon for the lunar landing as we approach the 50th anniversary of this historic event and view the magnificent gas giants of Jupiter and Saturn through the telescopes in the early evening sky. The spring constellations of Hercules, Bootes, and Virgo will also be seen through the telescope and discussed.

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

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

Registration is required.
