Friday, September 2nd, Public Observing Night Tonight – Comet Garradd
Come out & bring the kids to enjoy the final chance before school begins to stay up late & view the heavens. If you’ve never seen a comet before here is your chance! Tonight we will be trying to find Comet Garradd, reported by Spaceweather.com to be approaching 6th magnitude naked eye visibility. It should now be visible in binoculars. I have also obtained a lazer pointer to assist us in pinpointing stars, clusters, galaxies, and constellations for easy finding by all. It doesn’t get any easier than this!
Sky & Telescope Finder Charts found & printed out for viewing here.
Hope to see everyone there, at Cates Hill Park,10:30PM.
Clear Skies & Happy Star Trails!
