Fall is upon us, and although it sure doesn’t seem like it with the heat lately, the skies have been slowly starting to clear, and we have seen several good clear evenings at the observatory. With that said, we’ve scheduled our November Public Observing session at the observatory for Friday, November 13th. The event will begin at 7:00 PM.
We’ll have a two day old crescent moon to check out early, then as the evening progresses, we’ll be looking at the winter constellations rising in the east, such as Orion, Taurus, Gemini, and Auriga. With these constellations come some great targets, such as the Orion Nebula, the Pleiades, the Crab Nebula, and several nice Messier clusters in Auriga. And don’t forget the Double Cluster!
Please see our Observing Session Guidelines posted here and on Facebook, to enhance your observing session at KPO.
