Stunning Views of Moon and Jupiter April 16th

Stop by Anna Maria College after dark, tomorrow Saturday April 16th, for extraordinary views of the moon and Jupiter! After the Central MA Science Festival, we’ll bring out telescopes for viewing the moon including closeups of the lunar surface and craters. You’ll also have excellent views of Jupiter and its moons. The moon is bright enough to observe in daylight so viewing will be easy by 7:30pm. The seeing conditions and transparency will be exceedingly good with each passing hour with predictions of less than 2 arc seconds.
