Hello Horizons Supporters!
A clear moonless sky is forecast for Friday, November 21st - so the Horizons Observatory will be open to the public for stargazing. The schedule will be as follows:
• 5:00-5:30 pm - Presentation on the night sky in the classroom.
• 5:30-6:15 pm – Observatory, including the large telescope in the observing dome and Mark Libby’s impressive 20 inch Dobsonian, will open to the public. As well, a star tour will occur on the deck.
• 6:15 – 7:30 pm - The observatory will be used by Killington Elementary School and Bridgewater Village School sixth grade students to photograph the Veil Nebula, a supernova remnant. Although the observatory will not be available for public viewing after 6:15 pm. telescopes outside the dome, including the 20 inch Dobsonian, will continue to be available for stargazing.
If the forecast holds and it is clear, it will also be quite cold. Please dress VERY warmly!
The event will be canceled in the event of cloudy skies.
