Astronomy open house at Kennon Observatory

Astronomy Open House: Astronomy open house in Kennon Observatory Dec. 12, Sunday, 5:00-7:00 pm. Moon, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, and the Pleiades. Free.


We are offering a viewing of the sky with out telescopes in Kennon Observatory on Nov. 12, Sunday night, 5:00-7:00 pm.

We’ll be looking at the Moon. The half-Moon is always great!

Early arrivals may be able to catch Venus, which sets at 7 pm. Venus is now very large in the telescope - this is the right time for it!

Saturn and Jupiter are both great.

We’ll look at the Pleades after Venus goes down.

The event is free, families are welcome. We ask visitors to have masks handy, and put them on when indoors or when many people congregate in a small area.

Viewing is not possible when the sky is cloudy - if that happens we’ll have to cancel and ask everyone to come back in exact 4 weeks for another try.
