    Astronomy Open House

    8:30 pmKennon Observatory
    We are offering a viewing of the sky with out telescopes in Kennon Observatory on May 28, Sunday night, 8:30 – 9:30 PM.
    We’ll be looking at the Moon, Mars and Venus. The half-Moon is always great!
    Venus is very bright and the phases are obvious now.  Mars is bright in the sky but small in the telescope.
    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.

    See this page for the full schedule.
