The Summer’s Here Stargazing Tour takes to the sky at the Lennox & Addington Dark Sky Viewing Area on June 28th & 29th.
(June 18, 2019, Lennox & Addington County) The Lennox & Addington Dark Sky Viewing Area’s 2019 stargazing event season continues on June 28th & 29th. The ‘Summertime Stargazing Tour’ will be presented by dark sky enthusiast, Joe Gilker and is set to begin an hour after dusk (weather permitting). Joe has become well-known in astrophotography circles in recent years and writes the popular “Dark Arts Astrophotography” blog.
Joe will point out the Zodiac and prominent summer constellations during a laser-guided tour of the night sky. You can then peek through a telescope see the Hercules Cluster, Jupiter & Saturn. Both planets are nicely visible on either side of the Milky Way and will make for some amazing views.
Please note that these stargazing sessions are very weather dependent and will take place ONLY IF THE SKY IS MOSTLY FREE OF CLOUDS. Please visit www.DarkSkyViewing.com or www.Facebook.com/darkskyviewing for the most up-to-date information about viewing conditions.
