Under the Stars: Astronomy Viewing

Monday, October 36:30—8:30 PMBeaver Brook Parking Lot off of Waverley Oaks
Beaver Brook Reservation

Our friends from the Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston organization will give a short lecture on what's currently in the night sky, and then we will be able to look through their telescopes and see for ourselves. We will see a nice crescent Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and lots of starry goodies. All ages are welcome, and if you have a telescope you want more instruction on using, come early with it!

Any flashlights should be low-power and covered with a dark-red filter (maybe made from an inexpensive plastic report cover from a stationery store). Please do not use LED lights on headbands or flashlight apps on smart phones (unless the app allows the color of the light to be made dark red) to allow for the best viewing of the night sky.

6:00-6:30pm: Hands-on “workshop” to help patrons with their own telescopes, if they have them

6:30-7:00pm: Evening sky orientation

7:00-8:30pm:    Stargazing with telescopes
