Enjoy a stargazing tour of the night sky out in the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area with backyard astronomers from the Davis Astronomy Club. This will be a captivating tour of the night sky and will include viewings of constellations, star clusters, galaxies, and some unusually colored stars! Also available for viewing will be the first-quarter Moon with its stark craters and seas, and the setting planets, dazzling Venus and reddish Mars. You will also look at the setting sun through telescopes equipped with solar filters. The evening’s event will include a short talk about the major constellations and other star groupings and an orientation of the nighttime sky. As the sun sets, the group will enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
The UC Davis Astronomy Club is comprised of local amateur astronomers who love to share their passion for astronomy with people of all ages. They bring astronomy events and new information to the public through lectures and stargazing parties at the Explorit Science Center in Davis and outreach events in Yolo County and surrounding areas.
