  • Crescent Moon, Mars, and Double Stars

    6:30 PM-11:00 PM
    11-05-2016

    Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to enjoy the desert night sky on Saturday, November 5 at a free public event that begins at 6:30 pm and ends around 10:30 pm. The Observatory is at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the main (north) entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

    A bright crescent Moon will be above Mars in the southwestern sky at sunset. On display are the wondrous cratered surface of the Moon and the red planet Mars.

    Uranus and Neptune are well placed for viewing and appear as pale blue-green disks through a telescope. Visible later in the evening are the orange and blue double stars Alberio and Almach, and the dazzling Double Cluster in Perseus.
    Prominent constellations are Andromeda (the Princess), Aquila (the Eagle), Cygnus (the Swan), Lyra (the Harp), Cassiopeia (the Seated Queen) and Pegasus (the Winged Horse).

    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.

    The status of the Joshua Tree at Joshua Tree National Park
    with Neil Frakes, Division of Resource Management at Joshua Tree National Park

    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/Sponsors – beverages will be served.

    There is growing concern among the scientific community that Joshua trees are vulnerable to climate change. Predictive modelling efforts have shown that Joshua trees could be extirpated from Joshua Tree National Park within 80 years or reduced to approximately 10 percent of their current range and restricted to areas known as refugia. A lack of seedling establishment has also been found at the harshest, driest sites at lower elevations. Recently a petition has been put forward to consider listing the Joshua tree under the Endangered Species Act. Joshua trees are the namesake of the park and are a major attraction to visitors. Popular media has latched on to these findings, and visitors often wonder if Joshua trees are disappearing from the park. Vegetation staff at the park are beginning to establish a network of long-term monitoring plots to document changes to Joshua tree populations. We are sampling the same sites that were sampled in the 1970s as part of a Master’s thesis, allowing us to assess change over a 40 year period. Park staff are also focusing on sampling the lowest elevation areas where Joshua trees first start occurring, as these are likely most vulnerable to the effects of climate change and where signs of decline might already be noticeable. Joshua trees can also be impacted by wildfire, and the park is looking at ways to protect potential climate change refugia for Joshua trees from burning, as much of the area identified as refugia has already burned. Despite the growing concern for Joshua trees, there are a few signs of hope, that highlight the resilience of this long-lived desert species.

    Neil Frakes is the Vegetation Branch Chief in the Division of Resource Management at Joshua Tree National Park. He oversees a variety of vegetation based programs at the park including native plant restoration, invasive plant species management, field botany, climate change monitoring, and rock climbing stewardship. He started at Joshua Tree in July of 2015. He holds a B.A. in Geography and Environmental Studies from Macalester College , and an M.A. in Geography from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Prior to working for the National Park Service, he worked for the U.S. Forest Service in the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program. He grew up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

  • Spectacles of the Fall Sky

    9:00 PM-11:00 PM
    11-26-2016

    Saturday, November 26 at Sky’s The Limit:

    Spectacles of the Fall Sky

    Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to enjoy the desert night sky on Saturday, November 26 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.

    A tour of the best cosmic wonders in the early winter sky include two remarkable galaxies in the constellations of Andromeda and Sculptor, the Double Cluster in Perseus, the Owl Cluster in Cassiopeia, and the well-known Pleiades star cluster in Taurus. Also visible are Uranus, Neptune, and the dazzling multi-colored double star, Almach in the constellation Andromeda.

    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.
