Cultures across the world and throughout time are united in a fascination with the night sky. Humans have used stars to mark the passage of time, tell stories, build mythologies, and navigate across vast dark oceans. With powerful telescopes and a wealth of knowledge, Bob Piekiel is your tour guide to the stars and planets, revealing the secrets of the far away, inspiring us to think about how special our little green and blue ball in space is.

Here’s our first chance in the year to catch a glimpse of Mercury, also Jupiter and Uranus will still be visible, and our last good look at the bright winter constellations. Plus, a farewell to winter skies, with the bright stars and clusters around the constellation Orion, And, as a special “bonus”, we should be able to see Comet 12P Pons-Brooks as well!

This program is offered for free thanks to our Star Party Program Sponsor, Marcellus Smiles.
