We are offering a view of the night sky with our telescopes in Kennon Observatory on Sunday, Mar. 1.

Venus is a bit more gibbous than half, sets after 7 pm; the Moon is great; Uranus is visible but tiny in the telescope. The double star Castor is an easy target.

The event is from 6:15 - 8:00 PM. In 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.
