Orion, the hunter, is one of the most recognizable constellations in the winter night sky. In the special "Focus Night" at RFO, we'll take an in depth look at Orion. Learn about the beautiful stars and nebulae that make this constellation so unique, and find out what he and his two faithful dogs are hunting!
The program will feature a talk, suitable for all ages on this wondrous constellation. The observatory's three large telescopes--an 8" refractor, a 40" reflector, and a 20" astrophotography system--will be available for you to see all of the wonderful and mesmerizing objects in Orion so far from us.
You'll get plenty of time at the telescope eyepieces...and as always, the observatory will be staffed by knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers eager to show you the night sights, and answer any questions you may have.
The program starts promptly at 7PM. Tickets are limited to 40 guests; $25.00 per adult and $20.00 for seniors (62+) and youth under 18.
RFO is operated by the Valley of the Moon Observatory Association, a 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization, and all of the proceeds will go towards maintaining this beloved Sonoma county institution.
