Next Planetarium Show/Star Party: Saturday October 9, 7:30 pm
A Virtual Planetarium Show and Star Party

Jupiter & Saturn in Prime TIme

Jupiter and Saturn have moved into great locations to observe them in the evening. Join astronomer Steve Ruhl will discuss what you can see, their characteristics, the latest findings, and last year’s conjunction.

If the sky is clear, we will have a virtual star party with the Ritchie (or other) telescope on the island. Depending on the situation, we may supplement with in-person viewing at the observatory.

This program is open to the public.
Unfortunately, due to Covid we are unable to host this program in person. So we will stick with our tried-and-true Zoom presentation format. A live, virtual star party will follow, weather permitting.
