From 5:30pm until 6:30pm
Join the Tin Mountain Conservation Center and staff member Matt Maloney for an introduction to the night sky in fall. Utilizing a telescope and laser pointer we’ll look at the rings on Saturn, as well as getting good looks at Jupiter and Mars. We’ll then navigate our way through the celestial dome by learning the fall constellations and sights unique to the season such as the southern star Fomalhaut. All of this will take place at a beautiful orchard location in Shelburne. Matt will also tell some of the stories behind the constellations names and show how observing the zodiac can serve as a way of marking the earth’s journey around the sun. Rain date of November 13.
Call Tin Mountain at 603-447-6991 to register and for directions. Face masks are required and will be available. Hand sanitizer and wipes will be available before and after telescope use.
