The William D. McDowell Observatory in DeKorte Park begins a new month of programming tonight with free public access from 9 to 10:30 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday nights — 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.

And use bug spray before heading inside. When the dome is open the mosquitoes come piling in.
