As summer begins, we will have a beautiful moon in the eastern sky plus three bright planets: Jupiter, Saturn and Venus. High overhead will be the ancient hero of heroes, Hercules, along with the giant Ophiuchus wrestling in the sky with a monstrous snake! We’ll start indoors with a slide show and a brief introduction to using a star chart. There will be free star charts for everyone and, if the sky permits, wonderful telescope views of lunar craters, Saturn’s rings and the four brightest moons of Jupiter. Hosted by Val Germann and co-sponsored by the Central Missouri Astronomical Association. Enter through the Gene Martin Secret Garden at the west end of the main parking lot. Ages 6-adult.
