Observatory: December Schedule

IMG_9183-1 The William D. McDowell Observatory in DeKorte Park begins a new schedule of programming on tonight with free public access at 7, 8 and 9 p.m. — weather permitting, of course.

Dress for the weather; with the dome open, you are basically outside.

Each evening at least two major objects in the night sky will be viewed, plus one or two other celestial objects or events depending on the observing conditions. Note: Monday, Dec. 20, and Wednesday, Dec. 22, the Moon will be full.
