Date(s) - Tuesday, July 2, 2019

Patuxent Research Refuge-North Tract


Possible dates: July 2nd, 3rd, or 5th,
8:30 – 10:30 pm
All ages, registration required
Date will be selected on the 1st
Come out and see the stars, galaxies,
clusters and nebulae through an 18”
telescope, hear some stellar lore and
learn a little about light pollution,
how it affects the animals at Patuxent,
and what you can do to help reduce
it and to regain darker skies for the
next generation. We’ll be able to see
Galaxies such as the Black Eye Galaxy,
with it’s prominent dust lane, and the
“Sombrero Galaxy,” among others.
Big Dobsonian telescopes are great
for viewing Globular Clusters, and
the largest one viewable from North
America (M13) is visible this month, so
come out and see this enormous ball of
stars that is gravitationally bound to
our Milky Way Galaxy. Be the first on
your block to say “I saw it with my own
eyes–at Patuxent Research Refuge!”
