Family Astronomy and Telescope Night


April 24 at 8 p.m.

Families are invited to an evening of astronomy. The evening will begin with a short (< 1 hr) presentation on meteor showers followed by an observing session.

The Moon and Mars are visible in the evening sky this month, both by eye and by telescope. Plus, the deep sky objects can be viewed for the last time this season. Telescopes will be available to guests but feel free to bring binoculars if you have them.
