A star party to view late-winter and early-spring night skies will be offered Saturday, April 15, by the Klamath County Museum.
The free astronomy event will be held at Sukraw Farms, located at mile post 4 on Lower Klamath Lake Road. Participants should plan to arrive around 7:30 p.m. Telescopes will be set up for viewing.
“This will be our last good chance to see the Orion nebula for this season,” said museum director Todd Kepple. “The nebula can be easily detected in binoculars, and looks nice in a portable telescope, especially in a location with dark skies.”
Amateur astronomers will be on hand to locate various deep-sky objects.
Anyone who has a personal telescope they would like help with is invited to arrive early, around 7:00 p.m. A volunteer will be available to assist in use of telescope.
