Chart the Dark Sky: What’s Up at Night!
Meet County night sky enthusiasts Ramesh Pooran and James Rose in front of the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory (PEPtBO) at the National Wildlife Area. They will focus your attention and their telescopes on stars and planets, the Milky Way, and the occasional satellite. You will see Mars, Jupiter and Saturn as well as star clusters, nebulae and galaxies.
Please back into parking spaces. Please cover your flashlight with red plastic (regular flashlights interfere with/do not preserve your night vision). Bring binoculars and a folding chair. Dress warmly, temperatures are cooler near the water. You will take home a chart of the night sky. This event is suitable those 5 years old and up.
