It's a beautiful night, the observatory will be open at 7:30pm

Public Observing Event

at the ACA Observatory


Impromptu Event!

It looks like a great evening for stargazing; cool temperatures, low humidity, and clear skies.

What will we be looking at tonight?

Early birds will be treated to view of Saturn before it sets. We'll be exploring the remains of a star that exploded 5000 years ago and observing many new objects including a galaxy discovered by William Herschel and many planetary nebulae and open clusters. Neptune clears the treeline by 9:45pm.  Star party temperature in mid 50's - just perfect, but bring a jacket.
We'll have the Best Free Coffee in Akron brewing all observing session.

    The Jet Stream affects astronomical "seeing" (steadiness of the air)
    If we're in a gray area, seeing will not be as good as in a white area.
    If we're in a white area, the shorter the arrows, the better.
