Public Observing Event

Impromptu Event!

It looks like a great evening for stargazing; warm temperatures, low humidity, and clear skies.

What will we be looking at tonight?

Jupiter and its four Galilean Moons (Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto) are well-placed as the ecliptic is still pretty high. Exciting observing list will compliment Jupiter viewing. We hope to see you here.
