Explore the night sky with GSWA and North Jersey Astronomical Group (NJAG) for a very special late night summertime event. Our guest this evening is Mark Zdziarski of NJAG, who will help facilitate our viewing of the night sky and its constellations. This is a great event for amateurs, seasoned skywatchers, and any curious folks wanting to dip their toe in astronomy.

 
As the evening darkens, Jupiter and Saturn become more prominent in the Southern sky.  With luck, we will see the dragons and heroes of the Summer sky directly overhead; Serpens, Scorpius, Draco as well as Hercules, Ophiuchus (Asclepius), and Bootes the herdsman.
 
We will also hopefully witness the sounds and sights of late night wildlife at 568 Tempe Wick Rd.

This event is weather permitting – Please be sure to check for updates closer to the event. Tickets are extremely limited.
