"The Moon and Planets" Skywatching at The Ponds

Weather permitting, we will be holding an event at The Ponds focused on the moon and visible planets.  The moon will be just past first quarter phase, Jupiter and Venus are getting closer to each other in the evening sky, and Saturn will be toward the east.  All of this means that now is a great time for planet-watching.

Join us at The Ponds, Friday, June 26th at 8:30pm for moon and planet watching.  In addition, we will be holding a mini telescope workshop before the event at 7:30pm, so, if you have a telescope that's just collecting dust and want to start using it, come out early and we'll help.  In order for us to be the most help, please email us ahead of time with the make and model of your scope, and bring the user's manual if you have one.
