Public Observing Event

at the ACA Observatory


Impromptu Event

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

What will we be looking at tonight?

Herschel's Double Cluster, Pleiades through the 100mm wide field telescope,
the planet Uranus, globular cluster M15, open cluster M34, and
Andromeda Galaxy are on the observing list.

The Observatory will open at 7:00 PM tonight

The forecast calls for temperatures in the lower 30s, so it is important to
come properly dressed for the event. Standing behind a telescope looking
at star clusters produces little body heat; it only warms the heart.
