Telescopes on the Terrace

Telescopes on the Terrace

Astronomer Jerry Jones will guide us in viewing the night sky from the Stillwater Library terrace, looking at the moon as well as targeting Jupiter and Saturn.  We will start with a short discussion in the library, then move out to the terrace to practice.  Jerry will bring his own telescope for participants to use, plus we will have a library loaner telescope available to try as well.  Watch your email, as this event may be cancelled or rescheduled due to poor weather or visibility.
