Observatory Schedule for January

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

Free public access is from 7 to 10 on Monday and Wednesday nights this month — weather permitting, of course.¬† (Note: The observatory will be closed on Monday, Jan. 19, for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a state holiday.)

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.
