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 forecast for Monday evening is for clear skies so let's plan
for an impromptu star party Monday evening starting at 9:00pm.
Come out to view globular clusters tonight. These star clusters contain
tens of thousands of stars in an area less than a 100 light-years across.
We’ll examine M5, M53, M13, M92, and M3 and discuss globular cluster classification

The observatory will open at 9:00pm this evening

Please dress appropriately for expected temperature conditions.
