A clear moonless sky is forecast for Friday night (October 21st) - so the Horizons Observatory will be open to the public for stargazing from 7:30-9:30 (weather permitting). After a tour of the night sky, we’ll use the observatory’s 8" and 14” telescopes to gaze upon the Hercules Star Cluster (M13), the Ring Nebula, Alberio (a stunning binary star system), Saturn, and Jupiter (with its four “Galilean” moons). Dress warmly. Please do not bring flashlights since this will reduce our ability to view the sky.
The Horizons Observatory is located on the campus of The Prosper Valley School at 1071 Pomfret Road, Pomfret, VT.
We're looking forward to seeing you and your friends on what promises to be a beautiful early autumn night full of stars! This event will be canceled in the event of cloudy skies.
