Other highlights will include the Hercules Star Cluster, and constellations including Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Cygnus the Swan -part of the Summer Triangle with stars Vega, Deneb, & Altair, Big & Little Dippers and more!
Some helpful suggestions:
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, wear warm closed-toe sneakers/shoes, binoculars if you have them, and parents can bring a flashlight to use when returning to your car at the end of the program. Please, no bright lights (flashlights or cell phones) during the presentation. Thanks!
