The Robert Ferguson Observatory is offering a limited-ticket event called "Whats Up?" on Thursday, July 27 at 8PM at the observatory. Come join us! You'll receive a tour of the observatory, a classroom talk about prominent objects that are viewable that night, followed by telescope observing on RFO's three large telescopes: an 8 inch refractor, an astrophotography telescope, and a large 40 inch reflecting telescope.|
If you've attended our Public Star Parties, you know that RFO can become very crowded and busy. "What's Up?" offers a more intimate event at the observatory, with a number of experienced astronomy docents to answer your questions, and more observing time at the telescopes.
The night's main showcase? Saturn will be well positioned in the sky and the rings are currently wide open for superb viewing. Other highlighted objects will include the Whirlpool Galaxy, currently colliding with another galaxy, and the Ring Nebula.
Tickets are limited to 40 participants: $15.00 per adult and $10.00 for seniors (62+) and youth under 18.
The observatory is a 501(3)(c) institution, and all proceeds from this event go towards maintaining its many public education programs.
