Today is International Observe the Moon Night. Come out to the LAS Urban Astronomy Center (UAC) which will open this evening starting around 7 pm. We will have a few club telescopes set up in the field outside the UAC. Feel free to bring a telescope out as the Moon and Saturn will be well placed for viewing at dark. Later in the evening Jupiter will be high enough to look at.
As always observing is weather dependent. Rain or cloudy skies will cancel the event. We will post Saturday by early afternoon on our Facebook page if this is cancelled.
Directions to E. P. "Tom" Sawyer State Park:
- From Westport Road, take Freys Hill Road (turn toward the Thortons and Canes)
- Follow Freys Hill Road around to the second entrance to the Park.
- Turn right into the Park go past the BMX track and to the end of the road.
- The LAS is located in the long white building and we normally turn on a red light outside our door. We are the third door. If the weather cooperates you may park in the grass under the trees. If not, please park behind the building or over by the Archery Range and walk over.
