Sidewalk Astronomy September 2018
« on: September 03, 2018, 10:20:20 am »
Sidewalk Astronomy at the Celery Fields
Monthly observing of the celestial wonders resumes on September 15th

I am pleased to announce the return of Sidewalk Astronomy following our annual summer hiatus!

Weather permitting, on Saturday, September 15, 2018 starting at 7:45 p.m., and continuing until at least 10:15 p.m., the Local Group of Deep Sky Observers will set up high-quality telescopes for your viewing pleasure 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, you'll find parking available in the large parking lot just west of the Nature Center building. Our telescopes will be set up in the smaller lot on the east side of the Nature Center. (Telescopes will NOT be set up at the top of the hill.)

Observing highlights during the evening include the spectacular ringed planet Saturn, as well as the planets Mars, Jupiter and Venus. The first quarter moon and other deep-sky wonders will also be viewed through our telescopes.

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