Friday, March 7th – We’re Hosting Our International Sidewalk Astronomy Night (ISAN) Event TONIGHT, 7 – 9 p.m.!

Greetings fellow astrophiles!

The Syracuse forecast calls for overcast skies (and possibly worse) on the official night of ISAN7 (tomorrow – Saturday, March 8th), so we are going to use the clear skies tonight (Friday, March 7th) to the best of our abilities at the same downtown location for ISAN7 Syracuse.

All of the other info about this event and some of its history, including the use of ISAN7 to honor the late John Dobson, can be found at our original post HERE.

We hope you can join us for a little downtown viewing! We’ll be featuring such sights as the Moon (which, if you’ve never seen it through a scope or binoculars, is quite a sight), Jupiter (which has been excellent in our skies recently), the Orion Nebula, several star clusters, random satellites (no ISS tonight unfortunately), a bit of mythology, and anything else bright enough to be visible from just West of Armory Square. We hope you can join us!
