Sidewalk Astronomy at the Celery Fields

December 7, 2019 @ 5:30 pm 10:00 pm

On behalf of the Local Group of Deep Sky Observers, I am pleased to announce the next Sidewalk Astronomy event, Weather permitting, on Saturday, December 7, 2019, starting at 5:45 pm, and continuing until at least 10:00 pm.

Sidewalk Astronomy will set up their high-quality telescopes in the parking lot at the southeastern corner of Sarasota’s Celery Fields Park.  Home to the Sarasota Audubon Society, located at 6893 Palmer Boulevard, Sarasota, parking will be available just west of the Nature Center building. The telescopes will be set up in the parking lot on the east side of the Nature Center. (Telescopes will NOT be set up at the top of the hill.)

The evening’s observing highlights will feature close-up details of the waxing gibbous Moon as well as a chance to view the two most distant gas giant planets in our Solar System: Uranus and Neptune. A variety of other deep-sky objects will also be viewed through the club member’s telescopes during the night.  As always, Sidewalk Astronomy is free of charge and is open to people of all ages.
