    Saturday, August 12 at Sky’s The Limit

    Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to enjoy the desert night sky on Saturday, August 12. This free public event begins at 8:15 pm and ends around midnight. The Observatory is at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the main (north) entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

    The planets will be the main attractions tonight: Jupiter will be setting early and Saturn will be visible all evening nestled between Sagittarius and Scorpius. Also look for the bright clouds of the center of our own galaxy; many of the finest clusters and nebulae are in this region of the Milky Way, including the Lagoon and Swan nebulae and the sparkling Butterfly and Wild Duck Clusters.

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

    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.
