Astronomy in the Park

Clouds kept us from looking at almost everything except the moon, but it was still a nice night. This Wednesday should be better. Join us at Brittlebank Park every Wednesday at sunset for stargazing fun!

See Iridium Satellite Flares This Week

Have you heard of iridium flares? There are 66 satellites in orbit, owned by Iridium Communications, used for satellite phone communication. These satellites have three door-sized antennas that occasionally reflect the sun's light, which is seen as a flare from earth.
There are a few good chances during the next couple of days to witness one of these satellite flares: Sunday night around 8:42pm will be the first opportunity. Monday night brings two more chances - at 8:36pm and again at 8:37pm. Check the site below for details. Happy satellite hunting!

Sorry, Astronomy in the Park is cancelled again

If there's one thing that's almost certain in Charleston, it is rain. Unfortunately, due to the weather, we have to cancel tonight's Astronomy in the Park. And on the 27th anniversary of Hurricane Hugo no less. Hopefully next week will be better. Fingers crossed!
