We are offering a view of the night sky with our telescopes in Kennon Observatory on Sunday, April 14. We’ll be viewing the Moon and other interesting object such as a double star (Castor), the now very tiny-looking Mars, perhaps Orion Nebula and the Pleiades.

The event is from 8:00 - 10:00 PM. In the case the sky is cloudy, no observations can be made and the event will have to be canceled.

Admission is free, families and children are welcome.
