Night Sky Adventures – Venus on the Rise

 10/15/2021 @ 6:30 pm

Join Lead Night Sky Rangers Kim and Geoff as we start a little earlier this weekend viewing the heavens in order to catch a glimpse of Venus as she rides lower in the sky this evening. The moon will be visible and we’ll spend some time looking at the craters, ridges, and other features. The planets Jupiter and Saturn will also be up in the sky so we’ll look at them. The bright Moon will wash out the sky but we will try and check out some of the brighter Deep Space Objects (DSOs). We’ll use our Revolution Imager to enhance the images captured by our telescope. Additional Night Sky Adventures will be held 10/1, 10/2 & 10/16. Sponsored by McLean Research, mcleanresearch.com and The Last Green Valley, thelastgreenvalley.org
