    DEEP SKY HIGHLIGHTS AT SKY'S THE LIMIT

    6:15 PM-9:30 PM

    DEEP SKY HIGHLIGHTS AT SKY’S THE LIMIT

    Saturday, February 17 at Sky’s The Limit:

    Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to enjoy the desert night sky on Saturday, February 17. This free public event begins at 6:15 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.

    Come observe the winter Milky Way and its fine nebulae and star clusters along with several of the most recognizable constellations. Eight first-magnitude stars – including the brightest star in the sky, Sirius – will light up the night.

    The deep sky highlights are the Great Orion Nebula, the colorful open cluster M35 in Gemini, and the ghostly Crab Nebula in Taurus.

    Prominent constellations are: Cassiopeia (the Seated Queen), Auriga (the Charioteer), Taurus (the Bull), Orion (the Hunter), Gemini (the Twins), and Canis Major (the Great Dog).

    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.

    There are no overnight stays and NO CAMPING anywhere on the Observatory and Nature Center property. No pets, no smoking or alcohol allowed, and visitors must carry out all trash. Adults must accompany and take responsibility for the safety and behavior of children under 16.

    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 Ray at 760-365-7897.

    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.
