Sky Watching Season Returns to Danbury Saturday Night
The fall sky watching season starts again Saturday night at Western Connecticut State University's planetarium and observatory.
Public viewing nights are back and hosted each Saturday beginning this week and ending Dec.15. The public nights are free and happening at the Western Connecticut State University observatory near Pinney Hall on the University’s west side campus, that's 43 Lake Ave. Extension.
According to newstimes.com, the hour-long planetarium show is followed by telescope viewing of the stars. Make sure and pick a clear night because viewing periods will not be offered when there is a significant cloud cover that would limit sky observation.
This Saturday’s event starts at 7 p.m. and the sky observation will be from 8 to 10 p.m. If it's a fairly clear evening you should be able to see the M13 star cluster, the Ring Nebula, the double star Albireo, Saturn and Mars.
For the latest information, and to confirm plans for a scheduled public night, call (203) 837-8672 on the day of the event.
