7:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: The Blue Mountains Public Library Zoom.
Join Ian Wheelband from RASC as we virtually stream telescope views of Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. We will also identify the Fall constellations using a live sky video. Need a star finder? You may pick one up from the library in advance (while supplies last). This is a rain or shine event, and if we are clouded out we will still be able to view the objects from a remote (or prerecorded) telescope. You will need a computer or laptop with a web camera, or a tablet or smart phone to participate in this event. Once registered, you will be sent a Zoom Meeting ID and password to attend this program. Open to all ages. Free program.Contact: Jen
