Clear skies allowing, come out under the stars and look through telescopes provided by NSAAC volunteers. See the rings of Saturn and the moons of Jupiter, along with a collection of deep space objects like star clusters and nebula, some over 25,000 light years away. Dusk will limit initial viewing to brighter objects; as the evening progresses the telescopes will be aimed at different objects of interest. Venus will set early, not long after sunset. This event is part of Trails & Sails 2022.
The Observatory, with the support of volunteers from the North Shore Amateur Astronomy Club, hosts public stargazing every Wednesday night (weather permitting) starting at dusk or 7:30 pm, whichever is later. When special astronomical events of interest occur (total lunar eclipses, etc.) the Observatory often holds special viewing times. Check the Observatory Status Page before coming as it will state whether observatory is open for the evening.
