Brower Star Party: Seeing Saturn

We’re on for tonight, with most weather forecasts predicting clear skies. Because it’s so warm and summery, we’re going to start early, at 7:00pm, the better to catch Saturn as it emerges from the dusk, before it settles below the western treetops. Saturn is in an especially interesting position now relative to the Sun. Its rings are casting wide shadows onto the surface of the planet, making them appear unusually pronounced. It won’t be half as much fun unless you are there, and Brower’s planetary telescopes are likely better than anyone has at home, so join us!

Brower Star Party

What happened to summer? With apologies for its sneaking past me on a seemingly instantaneous trip into the middle of September, we have a star party this Saturday, September 16, 2017, at 7:00pm at Brower Observatory. Weather forecasts are mixed, per usual, with AccuWeather Astronomy predicting a fine night, and MeteoBlue predicting clouds. There will be no rain date, due to most of us being at the Acadia Night Sky Festival on the following weekend.

Acadia Night Sky Festival

The Acadia Night Sky Festival begins soon! CMAS will be there with the 16″ mirror from Brower Observatory in its traveling Dob mount, along with all the telescopes our members bring. Whether you attend for one day or several, the public needs you for stargazing at night and solar viewing during the day. If you have not yet registered, please visit the Doodle poll.
