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?
.

We had an excellent stargazing session this past Tuesday evening.
Jupiter's Great Red Spot was easily visible 50 minutes before sunset! If you
missed it, you have another chance on Thursday, 9/19 (tomorrow). And it will
be an evening of events with Jupiter's Great Red Spot transit at 8:28pm, occultation of Jupiter's Moon Io at 9:06pm, and a high ISS pass at 8:46pm.
In between, we'll observe Saturn, open cluster NGC 6633, Wild Duck Cluster, Butterfly Cluster, ET Cluster, Herschel's Double Cluster, Swan Nebula,
globular clusters M22 & M15, Andromeda Galaxy, and more.

The observatory will open at 7:45 PM for stargazing

Please dress appropriately for expected temperature conditions

    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.
