Public Star Party: Spring Constellations Arrive
May 23 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The Water Snake, Crow, Lion, Herdsman, Bears, and Dragon constellations are bright in the sky this month. Immense galaxies located millions and millions of light years apart are numerous in the night sky. It is also a great time to observe a wide variety of star clusters and nebulae, which are giant clouds of gas and dust where new stars are forming. Nebulae can also be produced by the explosions of dying stars.
Attendees will be able to observe our pristine night sky thru the lens of the Smokey Jack Observatory’s 14”, state of the art telescope. Additional telescopes will be setup around the Observatory for viewing as well
Free and open to the public.
