Participants will have the opportunity view the Orion Nebula, Jupiter and its Moons, as well as various deep space objects.  This will be an outdoor event so you should dress appropriately. 

To ensure the best possible viewing experience, we ask that you turn off your headlights immediately after parking and that you not bring a flashlight.  In the event of clouds or inclement weather, the event will be moved to Thursday, March 17th from 7:30 – 9:00 pm.
