Public Observing Session - The Moon and Jupiter
When: April 16, 2013, 08:30 PM - 10:00 PM
Where: Observatory SLRC
Both the Crescent Moon and Jupiter will be visible in the western sky after sunset tonight. When Galileo first saw these objects through his small telescope in 1610 his observations revolutionized our understanding of the Universe. You can come to the Observatory tonight and see them for yourself through one of the Observatory's telescopes!
