Event Details

We welcome you to join us at the Coca-Cola Space Science Center on Saturday, February 4, for one of our free Astronomy Nights! We’ll begin at 6 p.m. in our Omnisphere Planetarium, with Dr. Rosa Williams pointing out interesting objects in the winter evening skies. Afterwards, weather permitting, we will bring out telescopes to the CCSSC’s South Lawn to view the First Quarter Moon, and the planets Jupiter and Mars. As the sky darkens, we’ll move on to double stars in Cassiopeia and Andromeda, star clusters like the Pleiades (“Seven Sisters”) and more. We may even be able to catch a glimpse of “green comet” C/2022E3 (ZTF) if the Northern skies are clear enough!

6PM: Presentation in Omnisphere Theater

8PM: Telescope Viewing (Weather permitting)

THIS IS A FREE EVENT.
