This month four planets dominate the
night sky. Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and
Mars will also be visible. Some of the
most spectacular autumn deep sky objects
will be visible right after sunset: Great
Globular Cluster (M13), Ring Nebula (M-
57), and Dumbbell Nebula (M-27). Come
out for a night under the stars and learn
how light pollution impacts wildlife as well.
Because this event is weather dependent,
you must sign up in advance, and will be
notified which night the event will occur on
November 3rd.
