About the event

The pattern of the constellations remains unchanged from generation to generation. Using these familiar landmarks (skymarks?) to guide us, we will point out some of the fascinating astronomical objects that can be seen with binoculars. Maybe a little too faint for the unaided eye, but not requiring the power of a telescope, there is a long list of amazing sky objects best viewed with a humble pair of binoculars.

Tickets are $5 at the door (cash or check, no cards). Children 6 and under are free.
