Dear Friends and Neighbors,
We had a really great turnout and clear skies for our October open house at Stargazer. It’s been so great seeing so much enthusiasm from the community. We have an open house coming up this Saturday, November 18, from 7:00-9:00PM. Since the time changed, it makes sense to go a little earlier. We’re really in a transitional time between the fall and winter constellations. Orion is one of the most prominent winter constellations and is rising right around 9:00PM. With the new moon on Saturday , this will be a good opportunity to try to spot some of the fainter deep sky objects, such as the Ring Nebula, Hercules Cluster, and Andromeda Galaxy. We’ll be losing them soon as we head into winter. As always, the open houses are weather permitting. Dress warmly as neither the dome or observation deck are heated. I hope to see you out there.
