The Northeast Kingdom Astronomy Foundation is pleased to announce its first STAR PARTY and open house of the new season, on Friday, June 15 at the Northern Skies Observatory, 336 Bayley-Hazen Road, Peacham, VT!
It doesn't really get dark until quite late, but early on we'll have a thin crescent moon, Venus will be up and the "star" of the early evening will be Jupiter! As dusk falls, we'll be able to observe some of the brighter, late spring deep sky objects!
We'll start observing at 8:30 PM and go until we run out of steam!
As always, dress for temperatures about 20 degrees cooler than the thermometer says, bring some bug spray (use carefully around optics!), leave your flashlight at home (unless covered with red plastic!) and park in the Peacham school parking lot.
As always, there is no cost, but we'll gratefully accept donations - if you are able, we suggest $5 per person or $10 for a family.
Check our Facebook page for late-breaking weather information!
We hope to see you there!
