Star Night with RASC
Saturday, September 29, 2018 - 7:00pm

Please RSVP to info@crossconservation.org or 403.931.1042

Join us with special guest Steve Donaldson and his enthusiastic volunteer amateur astronomers from the RASC for an evening that will explore the wonders of the night sky. Steve will guide us through what we can see in our current night skies from deep sky objects, the moon and everything in between. Afterwards, telescope viewing will be done outside with RASC volunteers. It will be an exciting opportunity to view Mars, clearly visible this time of year.

We will also be dedicating part of this evening to learning about the impacts of light pollution on the ASCCA and the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory.

The evening will run in and outside of Belvedere House (our education building) at the top of 160 St. just south of 22X. Refreshments will be provided. Please park in our lower parking lot and walk up to our building.

Time: Saturday September 29 from 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm 
Admission: FREE. We will be accepting donations at the door.
