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
