  • Crescent Moon, Mars, and Saturn

    Crescent Moon, Mars, and Saturn

    9:00 PM-11:00 PM
    08-06-2016

    Sky’s the Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to enjoy the desert night sky on Saturday, August 6 at a free public event that begins at 8:30 pm and ends around 12:00 am. The Observatory is at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the north entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

    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.

    A crescent Moon is low in the southwest at sunset. Mars and Saturn are nearly due south. We will observe the dynamic features of the crescent Moon until it sets, then focus on two dramatic planets.

    Also visible will be several fine double stars including one of first to be discovered: Gamma Delphini, in the small constellation of the dolphin that actually resembles its namesake.
    Prominent constellations are Scorpius (the Scorpion), Delphinus (the Dolphin), Aquila (the Eagle), Sagittarius (the Archer), Cygnus (the Swan), and Lyra (the Harp).
    The campus is always open, so arrive around sunset to allow time to visit other campus 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 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.

  • The Perseid Meteor Shower

    The Perseid Meteor Shower

    1:00 AM-4:00 AM
    08-11-2016-08-12-2016

    August 11 &12 at Sky’s The Limit:

    Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the north entrance to Joshua Tree National Park, will serve as a public dark sky site for viewing the Perseid Meteor Shower both Thursday and Friday nights.

    The campus is open to the public and everyone is welcome to enjoy this spectacular event. STL astronomers may be there for a time on both nights, but as they are all volunteers, many of them may have other commitments.

    The meteor shower will be best after midnight or around the time the Moon sets. The peak will be early Friday morning between 1 and 4 am. However bright meteors can be seen at any time from any direction. The peak is not the only time to see bright meteors. Intensely bright meteors have been spotted throughout the night for the past week.
    Astronomer Steve Caron says, “I have no doubt many people will be up at Sky’s The Limit both nights photographing the meteor shower. Our observatory is a fantastic place to capture the sky, especially the Milky Way. The Milky Way will be seen all night, most intensely directly overhead and to the northeast.”

    Some other general advice: Dress for unpredictable desert weather and bring snacks, water bottles, chairs or blankets, and a red-lens flashlight to preserve night vision. Children under 16 must be accompanied by adults. No pets and no smoking allowed on the STL campus, and visitors must carry out all trash.

    The seasonal sky is very unpredictable and viewing may be thwarted by cloudiness, rain, or excessive wind. Check Sky’s The Limit Facebook Page or follow @STL29Palms for the latest information, or call Steve at (760) 401-3004.

    THREE WOUNDED VETERANS, ONE VINTAGE PEDICAB, FOUR HUNDRED MILES

    On August 17, three wounded veterans will challenge themselves by pedaling a vintage single-speed pedicab four hundred miles in the summer heat across the desert from Arizona to California.

    Their journey will begin in Phoenix, Arizona, near the Veterans Affairs Hospital. From there, they will travel to Wickenburg the first day, then from Wickenburg to Parker the second day, Parker to 29 Palms, California, the third day, then finally they will ride from 29 Palms to Riverside, California. Show your support for veterans everywhere by riding alongside them for part or even all of this journey. Or, follow their ride via a live feed.

    Cycling is a proven form of therapy that helps veterans find strength within themselves. During this Journey, the cyclists will have to use teamwork, determination, and trust, just as they once did on the combat field.

    This ride is sponsored and organized by the Guardian Journey, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Riverside. The Guardian Journey’s mission is to aid and assist our nation’s heroes in recovering from visible as well as hidden injuries through sports activities like cycling, running, and hiking. Among future planned events is a cycling journey for twenty-four wounded veterans and first responders spanning five hundred miles, from Yosemite to southern California, in Spring 2017.

    The Guardian Journey was founded by Brian Keefer, a former U.S. Army Infantry soldier that was wounded in a combat training exercise. Keefer is from the small town of Wellsville, New York, and now calls Riverside his home. It is in Riverside that Brian found the love for cycling and reignited his “I can” attitude. With over a dozen surgeries, from spinal to feet, Brian’s goal is to help others like himself recover from their injuries and live healthier, more fulfilling lives. The Guardian Journey was founded to provide resources and activities for active military, veterans, first responders, and their family members, through cycling, running, walks, and family camps.
    Your support is greatly appreciated. Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information or to find out how to get involved, please visit the website www.theguardianjourney.com, email info@theguardianjourney.com, or call 951-525-5468.

    BROWN BAG LUNCH LECTURE
    “Drawn on Stone” with Tamara Serrao-Leiva

    Ancient art was left by people tens of thousands of years ago and is still largely debated among scholars and researchers. Take a tour through Europe, Africa, and North America, to investigate the different types of rock art, how it was made, and what it could mean. Can we use modern “rock art” to give us an answer? Audience participation is highly encouraged!

    Tamara Serrao-Leiva is the Curator of Anthropology at the San Bernardino County museum. Having workED as an archaeologist in cultural resources management, she developed a fascination for the symbols she would see every day in the field. She completed her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara and continued as a graduate student at the University of Sevilla, Spain where she received a Master’s Degree in prehistoric archaeology. She now serves on the board of various non-profits in Redlands and continues to work diligently on the Anthropology and Ethnography Collections at the museum.

    Bring your lunch, bring your friends, or just bring yourself to our Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series once a month. Speakers will present topics of special interest for high desert residents. The lectures start at 12:00 p.m. Admission is $ 5 – Free for Members – beverages will be served.

So bring your custom car and family, and enjoy hamburgers,hot dogs, and Root Beer Floats.

    Saturday, August 27 at Sky’s The Limit:

    Sidewalk Astronomy

    Sky’s the Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to enjoy the desert night sky on Saturday, August 27 at a free public event that begins at 8:00 pm and ends around 12:00 am. The Observatory is at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the north entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

    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.

    Mars and Saturn will be the main attractions and are very close in the southern sky near Scorpius. Also look for the bright clouds of the center of Milky Way galaxy that will be just to the east of Saturn. Many of the finest clusters and nebulae are in this region of the Milky Way including the Lagoon, Trifid, and Swan nebulae and the sparkling Butterfly and Wild Duck Clusters.

    Prominent constellations are Scorpius (the Scorpion), Delphinus (the Dolphin), Aquila (the Eagle), Sagittarius (the Archer), Cygnus (the Swan), and Lyra (the Harp).
    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 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.
