November Sky Astronomy Program and Viewing Party

Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area

What to know

Come and experience the night sky with the Sugar Creek Astronomical Society. The evening will begin with a lecture on “How to Buy a Telescope.” Following that will be the viewing party to look for Neptune rising in the east, dazzling Jupiter and Saturn, the always bright Venus in the southwest at sunset, and possibly Pluto in the southern sky. They will also look for some “deep sky” objects such as diffuse nebulae, planetary nebulae, open star clusters, globular star clusters, and galaxies. Recommended minimum age is 8 years old. Items you may wish to bring include a flashlight covered with a red cloth or red balloon, binoculars and/or telescope, folding chair, and a star chart if you have one. COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES ARE IN EFFECT FOR GUEST AND STAFF SAFETY. SPACE MAY BE LIMITED.
