Sidewalk Astronomy May 2018
« on: May 11, 2018, 10:22:49 am »
I am pleased to announce our final regularly-scheduled* Sidewalk Astronomy event before our summer hiatus.

Weather permitting, on Saturday, May 19, 2018 starting at 8:15 p.m., and continuing until at least 10:15 p.m., we will set up our high-quality telescopes for public viewing in the parking lot at the southeastern corner of Sarasota's Celery Fields Park.

Home to the Sarasota Audubon Society, located at 6893 Palmer Boulevard, Sarasota, parking will be available in the large lot just west of the Nature Center building.

Our telescopes will be set up in the parking lot on the east side of the Nature Center. (There will be no telescopes set up at the top of the hill).

Observing highlights during the evening include the first quarter moon and the gas giant planet Jupiter and its moons, as well as other deep-sky wonders that will be visible through the member's telescopes.

As always, Sidewalk Astronomy is free of charge and is open to people of all ages.


* Although we normally offer no Sidewalk Astronomy events during the summer months, please keep an eye out for an announcement or two from me regarding some SPECIAL OBSERVING EVENTS!
