Clear but cool and slightly windy skies are the order of the evening for our Beaver Lake session tonight. 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. Festivities start around 7:30 p.m.

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).

Spring Constellations and Planet Observation
