Public Telescope viewing this weekend

On Saturday evening, Feb. 8, Zacheis Planetarium will host a free, public telescope viewing session. Weather permitting, we will have telescopes outside for visitors to view Jupiter and its four largest moons, the Moon, and a selection of double stars and star clusters. Inside the theater at 6:15 and 7:15, we will present a short overview of the evening and morning skies, including bright stars, constellations, planets, and the Moon.

All programs at Zacheis are free and open to the public. Tickets are required for the indoor program due to limited seating, and will be available at the planetarium when doors open at 6:00 p.m.

Please dress VERY warmly. Cold toes take away some of the fun of seeing the cloud bands on Jupiter and craters on the Moon!

    • On Feb. 14 we will present the normal Friday afternoon movie at 4:30 and 5:15. That day we will be showing “Dynamic Earth: Exploring Earth’s Climate Engine”. There will not, however, be a viewing session.
