Deep Sky Observing

April 21, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Join Rangers Kim and Geoff for a night observing some far distant objects like galaxies, clusters of stars, Red Giants, Nebulae.  If you have a telescope – bring it.  If you don’t know how to use it come early and we’ll help get you get started.  (We’ll be there about 7PM.) Learn how to find the North Star.  We talk about – and answer – all kinds of astronomical trivia while we observe. This is a family friendly event.

Please – no lanterns and flashlights should be only be red lights.  No white lights.  We will be at the Sprague Land Trust property on Holton Road in Franklin. Directions/Parking:  From Baltic take 207 West, right onto Holton Rd. (before the Franklin School), drive almost to end.

Parking on left in mowed field/marked areas.

Sponsored By The Last Green Valley and McLean Research Associates

Note: all events are no dogs except for guide dogs which are permitted.

(Because guide dogs are well trained and pose little hazard to astronomical equipment – as an FYI)
