Our part in the celebration will start with solar observing at 5:00 PM. Then the 16 day old Moon, which was Full the day before, will rise a little after 9:30 PM but Jupiter, Saturn and Mars will be available for observing before Moonrise. And of course we will celebrate Mars at Opposition tonight.
Set up for solar observing by 4:30 PM and 7:00 PM for the evening viewing.
This event is being held at the PNC Achievement Center in Beckley Creek Park.
