See the rings of Saturn! Join Teacher Naturalist Matt Maloney for an introduction to the late summer night sky. Utilizing a telescope and laser pointer we’ll look at the amazing rings on Saturn, see the crescent moon as it sets and navigate our way through the celestial dome by learning the late summer constellations. All of this will take place at Tin Mountain’s beautiful hill top location at our conservation property in Jackson, with the evening silhouette of Mount Washington as our backdrop. 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. It should be a fun evening!
