    Astronomy Open House

    7:45 pmKennon Observatory

    We are offering astronomy open houses and viewings with our telescopes:

    • March 11, 2022 on Friday 7:45 - 9:00 PM
    We’ll be looking at the Moon. The half-Moon is always great!
    Uranus is tiny and dim in the telescope.
    We’ll also look at the Pleiades and the Orion nebula.
    The event is free, families are welcome. We ask visitors to have masks handy, and put them on when indoors or when many people congregate in a small area.
    Viewing is not possible when the sky is cloudy - if that happens we’ll have to cancel and ask everyone to come back in about 4 weeks for another try.

    See this page for the full schedule.
