December 8 Astronomy Observing Session

December 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


As Saturn makes its way to a western departure, Jupiter is well-established in the east. The constellations Orion, Gemini and Taurus now take center stage, climbing higher in the eastern sky. The Big Dipper is below Polaris, obscured by the tree line.

We have several different telescopes that are on display including a 14″ Schmidt-Cassegrain housed in a permanent observatory. Inside the observatory, you can watch deep sky objects grow in detail and full color on a wall-mounted monitor. Public sessions are co-facilitated by one or more of our talented cohort enthusiasts:

  • Mark Borton
  • Roger Charbonneau, Jr
  • Jon Dean
  • Jay Drew
  • Scott Mallory
  • John Natale
  • Parag Sahasrabudhe
  • Alan Sheiness

Young or old, experienced or totally unfamiliar, we look forward to exposing you to our uniquely dark skies here in Lyme. Upon registration you will receive a link to directions and observing session guidelines. For questions or comments, please contact us at

Clear skies!
