Clear skies allowing, come out under the stars and look through telescopes provided by NSAAC volunteers. See the rings of Saturn and the moons of Jupiter, along with a collection of deep space objects like star clusters and nebula, some over 25,000 light years away. Dusk will limit initial viewing to brighter objects; as the evening progresses the telescopes will be aimed at different objects of interest. Venus will set early, not long after sunset. This event is part of Trails & Sails 2022.
