Explore the night sky with a rare astronomy night at Great Swamp Watershed Association. Our guests of the evening are North Jersey Astronomical Group (NJAG) who will lead the viewing. See and learn about constellations visible in the Fall sky. The beautiful stars of the Big and Little Dippers will be visible as well as the constellations Draco, Cygnus, Pegasus and Hercules will be on display in the September sky. The moon is new on September 27, so faint objects are easier to see…such as star clusters, nebulae, and perhaps even some galaxies if the weather is clear enough. As the evening darkens, Jupiter and Saturn will become prominent in the south. Jupiter’s four largest moons and the rings of Saturn will be visible too!
Please check-in at GSWA HQ for information and light refreshments.
