Mid-Autumn Skies (206-210)

Fri, Nov 30, 6:00pm--7:30pm

The approach of Winter brings with it early sunsets, and although no planets are visible until Mars rises at about 7 pm, there's still plenty to see among the stars themselves. The constellations of summer are giving way to star patterns of fall: Pegasus the Flying Horse and Andromeda the Princess are taking center stage from the Summer Triangle. Among these stars are deep-sky jewels such as star clusters, the Ring Nebula, and the Andromeda Galaxy. A laser-guided tour of the constellations is supplemented by telescopic observation - bring your own binoculars and a red-colored flashlight, if you have them, and dress warmly. Sunset is at 4:51 pm.

Observing cancelled in case of cloudy weather, but an indoor classroom lecture will be available
