The Observatory’s July Schedule

IMG_5829The William D. McDowell Observatory in DeKorte Park has an exciting month of programming in July.

Free public access is from 9 to 10:30 on Monday and Wednesday nights this month — weather permitting, of course — including Wednesday, July 3.

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.
