You are here:

Join us for an evening under the September skies. Take in earthshine from the crescent moon, trace the path of the planets, and learn a few guideposts to locate and identify constellations. If you have binoculars, be sure to bring them along. We'll put them to good use. We can probably expect some dew, so remember water resistant footwear. Other good ideas include: portable chairs, insect repellant, a flashlight and a light jacket.
