    Deep Sky Highlights and Jupiter

    8:15 PM-11:00 PM
    04-22-2017

    Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to enjoy the desert night sky on Saturday, April 22. This free public event begins at 8:15 pm and ends around 11:30 pm. The Observatory is at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the main (north) entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

    Jupiter is still quite bright in the southeastern sky in the constellation Virgo. The great planet, its colorful clouds, and its four moons are prime viewing.

    Some bright galaxies featured tonight will be the pair known as Bode’s Nebulea, the face-on spiral Whirlpool Galaxy, and the edge-on Sombrero Galaxy.

    The double stars Mizar in Ursa Major and Algieba in Leo are some of the best in the sky.

    Prominent constellations are Gemini (the Twins), Hydra (the Water Snake), Virgo (the Maiden), Leo (the Lion), Boötes (the Herdsman), and Ursa Major (the Great Bear.)
    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, 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 a tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Donations to support Sky’s The Limit’s educational programs are gratefully accepted.
