Scheduled time for Public Observing: 9pm – 11pm
More information will be added below, please check again in the future!
Solar System Objects:
The Moon: will be 25° high in the West at 10pm, and 27% illuminated (Waxing Crescent phase, 5.1 days old). It will be too low for viewing in the 20″ refractor by 10:30pm.
Planets: Jupiter is rising in the SE, and will be high enough for observation by 9:30pm.
Nebula and Star Clusters:
International Space Station (ISS): Any visible flyovers will be added closer to the observing date.
Iridium Satellites: These satellites can produce bright flares (brighter then Venus) from their antenna arrays. Any visible flares will be added closer to the observing date, as prediction accuracy improves.
