Join us Saturday, August 27th, 2016 at 8pm at Three Peaks Recreational Area to look through a large telescope at Mars and Saturn (which will be very close together). That night we’ll also be able to see globular clusters, a few nebula, the Milky Way, and my favorite constellation of all time: Sagittarius.
This event is free and open to the public. Everyone is invited and it is free of charge. However, donations help us buy better equipment for the community, and are always deeply appreciated.
We recommend coming right at 8 pm, wrapping up for warmth, and bringing a blanket or chair for additional warmth and comfort. We’ll provide the telescopes.
Directions to Three Peaks from Cedar City can be found here.
Disclaimer: We stay until everyone leaves, however in the event of inclement weather, we will be there at start time (in this case 8 pm), but if we are rained/snowed out and no one shows up, we typically only wait one hour from start time to call it quits.
