Cancelled – Cloudy and Rainy Forecast – Deep Sky Observing – Friday, July 28, 8-11 pm

Expect this! Join Rangers Kim and Geoff for a night observing some far distant objects like galaxies, clusters of stars, Red Giants, Nebulae. We might be able to view Jupiter. 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  7 pm. 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. Difficulty: Easy. Key(s): NO dogs except for guide dogs which are permitted (FYI because guide dogs are well trained and pose little hazard to astronomical equipment).
