    Crescent Moon, Venus, and Deep Sky Highlights

    5:00 PM-9:00 PM
    12-03-2016

    Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to enjoy the desert night sky on Saturday, December 3 at a free public event that begins at 5:30 pm and ends around 9:30 pm. The Observatory is at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the main (north) entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

    Venus, a crescent Moon, and Mars will all be in a row looking west after sunset. This phase of the Moon will offer a three dimensional view of the lunar surface.

    Looking to the east, the Pleiades star cluster will resemble a miniature dipper shape above the bright orange star Aldebaran in the constellation Taurus. Also on view are the planet Uranus and the sparkling, colorful Double Cluster in Perseus.
    Prominent constellations are Andromeda (the Princess), Cetus (the Whale), Cygnus (the Swan), Cassiopeia (the Seated Queen), Pegasus (the Winged Horse), and Perseus (the Hero).
    Volunteers will set up a variety of kinds and sizes of telescopes on the winding sidewalks, and guests are welcome to use them or may bring their own binoculars and scopes as well. The presentation is very casual, so come at any time and leave when you wish. Bring a red flashlight to preserve night vision.

    The campus is always open, so arrive around sunset to allow time to visit other educational attractions before the cosmic tour begins at dark. Dress for unpredictable desert weather and bring snacks, water bottles, and chairs. Children under 16 must be accompanied by adults. No pets and no smoking or alcohol allowed on the STL campus, and visitors must carry out all trash.

    The seasonal sky is very unpredictable and a viewing event may have to be delayed, rescheduled, or cancelled due to cloudiness, rain, or excessive wind. Check Sky’s The Limit Facebook Page or follow @STL29Palms to learn the latest status of an event, or call Steve at (760) 401-3004.

    For more information and to see photos taken through STL’s 14” Celestron Schmidt–Cassegrain telescope, visit the STL web site at www.skysthelimit29.org. STL is an affiliate of the Basin Wide Foundation, a tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Donations to support Sky’s The Limit’s educational programs are gratefully accepted.
