Astronomy Night with Sugar Creek Astronomical Society
September 17, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
SCAS president Bill Murphy will begin with the indoor program. With the big planets coming back into view, we’ll watch a video on tips for viewing planets as well as the physical attributes of the planets and how they appear in a telescope like the ones that Sugar Creek will bring. We will also cover what to look for during the evening’s outdoor viewing session at 7:30 p.m. Weather permitting, we will view Saturn and Jupiter, some constellations, a star cluster, a nebula, and distant galaxies. 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. Recommended for ages 8 and above. COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES ARE IN EFFECT FOR GUEST AND STAFF SAFETY. SPACE MAY BE LIMITED.
