From 8pm until 9pm
8PM SESSION ADDED TO ACCOMMODATE DEMAND.
Join Tin Mountain Conservation Center for an evening of star gazing and an introduction to the winter sky. We’ll look into the heavens from an open, dark sky location in the Wildcat River Valley in the town of Jackson. Participants will be able to see and learn about the Zodiac constellations, Mars, the northern constellations, and southern sky sights such as Orion and the Orion Nebula. We’ll start off the evening with a look at the beautiful waxing crescent moon on the horizon through a telescope. Cold winter nights make for the clearest and darkest skies of the year, so bundle up, get out of the house, and come join us! Rain/snow/cloud date: January 16.
