 Join astronomer Rich Grebb for a guided tour of the starry sky!  The program will begin with star chart interpretation & hints for finding your way among the stars.  An exciting opportunity exists tonight for telescopic views of Jupiter, its moons Io, Europa, Callisto & Ganymede, and Saturn & its rings!   

Other highlights will include the Hercules Star Cluster, bright stars and constellations including the Big & Little Dippers, Scorpio, and Sagittarius.  Constellations will be outlined & described using a special laser pointer throughout the evening.  Also featured will be Cygnus the Swan and the Summer Triangle formed by stars Vega, Deneb, & Altair!

Helpful hints: 

-Bring extra layers of clothing since it gets quite cool after sunset, especially when sitting looking at the sky.

-Bring a chair or blanket to sit on, binoculars if you have them, wear warm closed-toe sneakers/shoes, and adults can bring a flashlight to use when returning to your car at the end of the program.

-This program is not intended for children under 6

-Please, no bright lights (flashlights or cell phones) during the presentation. Thank You!
