The crescent Moon and the majestic planet Jupiter will provide dazzling sights for this stargazing event while the bright, glittering stars of the Orion constellation highlight the heavens. Bing Quock of the California Academy of Sciences and Ron Dammann of the Fremont Peak Observatory Association will be your guides as you gaze through the Hume Observatory telescopes at the life-cycles of stars and the deep-sky wonders visible in the Spring sky. This evening session begins at sunset with an introductory presentation at the Dwight Center and continues at the Hume Observatory.
To personalize your stargazing experience, bring your own binoculars and a red-colored flashlight if you have them.
