The first Sorauren Stargazing event, Learn The Summer Constellations and See the Rings of Saturn, is scheduled for Monday, August 2.
As of this posting, the weather is looking favourable for that evening. We are planning to meet at 9:00 pm by the shipping container, near the dog park.
If there is any change to the weather, an alert will be posted on this site, and sent by email to those who have signed up for the Sorauren Stargazing list.
Dress appropriately for the weather. There may be a few evening bugs, so bug spray may come in handy. If you have a telescope or binoculars, please bring them. We will a have small telescope which can see the rings of Saturn if we have a clear view.
We will practice physical distancing and mask wearing. We’ll take turns at the telescope. You’re not supposed to touch the telescope even in regular viewing, to keep it steady… we’ll demonstrate the technique.
