    Astronomy Open House

    5:15 pmKennon Observatory
    We are offering a viewing of the sky with out telescopes in Kennon Observatory on Nov 27, Sunday night, 5:15 - 8:30 PM.
    We’ll be looking at the Moon. The half-Moon is always great!
    We’ll look at Saturn and Jupiter both great in the telescope. Mars is coming up late, best viewed at the end of the session.
    Neptune is tiny; the Seven sisters are pretty.
    The event is free, families are welcome.
    Viewing is not possible when the sky is cloudy - if that happens we’ll have to cancel and ask everyone to come back in exactly 4 weeks for another try.
    Along with the viewing, we will also have a fun Trivia Tournament on Astronomy facts.

    See this page for the full schedule.
