Beaver Lake Nature Center Hosts “Stargazing with CNYO” – 8 August 2013 (15 August Weather-Alternate)

CNYO is delighted to schedule another lecture at Beaver Lake Nature Center this coming August for an observing session of the Summer Constellations and all of the Messier Objects visible in the Southern Summer Sky. As with our most recent Beaver Lake session, there will be NO indoor lecture session. We’ll be running the entire discussion from the central yard in front of the main building, starting the lecture near the setting of the Sun and driving the discussion of Constellations and planets as they appear to our dark-adapting eyes.

We will again be using the CNYO Brochures How The Night Sky Moves and Guide For New Observers to drive discussion (and will have plenty on hand).

Stargazing with CNY Observers & Observing

Thursday, August 8th (Rain Date: Thursday, August 15th), 8:00 p.m.
