Impromptu Event -
Jupiter, Clusters & More

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

What will we be looking at tonight?

The forecast for Tuesday evening is clear skies. The Moon will be 5 days old.
On April 20th we had a similar phase that showed a crater in shadow near the terminator with 5 illuminated peaks. We'll be looking for that same crater
tonight to see if the sunlight is at the right angle to light up those peaks.
Jupiter and Saturn will be well-placed for observing.
Venus will start off our observing session. Event starts at 9:00pm.

Observatory will open at 9:00pm
