May 31, 2024 Astronomy Observing Session

May 31 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Free

DATE COULD SHIFT BASED ON WEATHER– Virgo is climbing higher in the southern sky along with its neighbor Corvus to the right (west), and Libra to the left (east). Around to the north, the Big Dipper is upside-down high in the sky, seemingly spilling its contents down onto Polaris.

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 and Alan Sheiness.

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

And if you have a telescope, we encourage you to bring it out. The more, the merrier. Just follow the guidelines in the pdf you receive when you RSVP.

Clear skies!
