View Jupiter and its moons on Saturday

(02-04-2014)

On Saturday evening, February 8, the Adams State University Zacheis Planetarium will host a free, public telescope viewing session. Weather permitting, telescopes will be available outside for visitors to view Jupiter and its four largest moons, the Moon, and a selection of double stars and star clusters. A brief presentation about the evening and morning skies, including bright stars, constellations, planets, and the Moon will begin inside the theater at 6:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.

All programs at Zacheis are free and open to the public. Tickets are required for the indoor program due to limited seating, and will be available at the planetarium when doors open at 6 p.m.

Dress very warmly. Cold toes take away some of the fun of seeing the cloud bands on Jupiter and craters on the Moon.
