On October 5th, we are joining forces with the prestigious Lunar and Planetary Institute (Universities Space Research Association) 3600 Bay Area Blvd. (at Middlebrook Drive) for a totally free and fun evening of activities for all and (of course) amateur astronomy from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm rain or shine.
As usual, we will have telescopes to show:
• Major constellations and asterisms and their legends
• Observation of the moon and visible planets (Jupiter and Saturn)
• Binocular astronomy demonstrations
• Flyers describing the moon and its phases, the scale of the solar system, the major constellations and asterisms visible now, a list of relevant URLs, free astronomy software from the net, etc.
• There will also be lots of activities for all ages inside the building. Please check https://www.lpi.usra.edu/education/skyfest/
