Come join astronomy professor Pete Saracino, and amateur astronomer Bob Smith, for a late afternoon/evening viewing of everything the sky has to offer. We will begin with a late afternoon viewing of the Sun through telescopes specifically designed to view features of the solar surface. After sunset, we will focus our attention on the slender crescent moon while discussing current theories of the moon’s origin. Finally, after moon set we will turn our attention to various celestial objects including constellations, asterisms, planets, star clusters, galaxies and deep sky objects – with a discussion on celestial mechanics and sky-lore thrown in for good measure. FREE. Must register by calling (315) 568-5987.
