The Lackawanna Astronomical Society will host Astronomy Day at Keystone College’s Thomas G. Cupillari ’60 Astronomical Observatory in Fleetville.
Enjoy an illustrated slide program, free sky maps, and safely view the sun before it sets over the western horizon using solar scopes (viewing depends upon the sun’s activity). Use telescopes to view the first quarter moon and it’s craters, mountains, mare and rills, and guests may even glimpse Mars. Beyond the solar system, observe stars, star clusters, double stars, globular clusters, and possibly a nebula or galaxy.
Lackawanna Astronomical Society members will be on hand to answer questions about their telescopes and observing the night sky.
Reservations are not required and admission is free. Free refreshments will also be available. Guests should bring a jacket or sweater since most viewing will take place outdoors.
Please see www.keystone.edu/observatory for directions to the Observatory.
