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?

The Orion Nebula, open clusters M46 & M47, the Eskimo Nebula
and a 5=day-old Moon are on the observing list. All we need are clear skies!

Observatory will open at 7:45 PM

Please dress for low temperature conditions.
The forecast calls for temperatures near freezing, 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.

    If we're in a gray area, seeing will not be as good as in a white area.
