Share this event:



Have you ever wondered what's really out there in the night sky? Wished you could zoom in on cosmic marvels? What if you had a handful of astronomers at your elbow, showing the way, answering your questions in plain language?

That's a Focus Night at Robert Ferguson Observatory! These are small groups so you get plenty of scope time, and a chance to focus on--

SATURN... a world that continues to dazzle and mystify. This iconic planet, sixth from the Sun, is home to an orbiting array of intriguing and unique worlds of its own. Yet even with a family of over 60 moons, where would Saturn be without its rings? Did you know that they are disappearing?

If you've never seen Saturn in a telescope, you're missing out on the thrill of a lifetime. But that's not all! Other spectacles of the night sky, including nebulae and galaxies, also await.

So come discover more of the summer sky and learn about this fascinating planetary system. We promise the rings are still there... for now.

Program info: In the observatory classroom you'll hear an in-depth presentation. Afterward, we move outside to three different telescopes for a direct look. In our new 40-inch reflector, one of the largest public telescopes in California, you can see details of deep-space objects that will leave you murmuring in awe.

The observatory is a 501(3)(c) institution, and all proceeds from this event go towards maintaining its many public education programs.
