    We are offering a viewing of the sky with out telescopes in Kennon Observatory on March 26, Sunday night, 7:30 – 8:30 PM.
    We’ll be looking at the Moon. The half-Moon is always great!
    We can also see the Pleiades and the double star Castor, as well as the Orion Nebula.
    The event is free, families are welcome.
    We’ll also have an Astronomy Art Contest and exhibition in room 101 Lewis Hall at 6:30 pm.
    (rain or shine).
    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.
