Interactive Stargazing & Mars Opposition Week 1

Join Lowell Observatory educators on October 6th at 8:00 pm PDT at the Giovale Open Deck Observatory (https://lowell.edu/godo) for the very first week of the Mars opposition! During this guided, interactive, virtual viewing session, we’ll showcase some planned celestial objects through our 14″ PlaneWave CDK telescope, including Mars at its biggest and brightest! Then, we’ll let you choose which objects to see next via YouTube’s chat function. It’s stargazing, reimagined!

After the stargazing session, Researcher Bill Sheehan will cover the fascinating history of Mars observation and astrophotographer Klaus Brasch will discuss the best ways to view Mars for this opposition. We’ll end the evening with a short presentation from one of our fabulous educators about what an opposition is and what makes this one special.

*Note: Programming may be canceled due to inclement weather.

You can find all of our Live-Streams and more on our YouTube channel!
