It’s not light, it’s not dark. It’s that special time called twilight, and the Highland Road Park Observatory wants to introduce you to it!
*Are all sections of the sky the same shade of blue?
*Which stars are seen first?
*Are Mercury☿ and Venus♀ or the Moon out?
*Is that moving object a plane, a satellite or space debris?
*How much actual darkness should I expect in a light-polluted city when twilight has passed?
There is no other time like twilight. Bring it into your life! The public is invited to this free event open to all ages. Binoculars are recommended.
NOTE: The April lecture “Wonders of the Spring Sky” is an excellent follow-up to this session.
This program is before the Friday Night Lecture Series on the last Friday in spring before Daylight Time begins, and on the first Friday in fall after Daylight Time ends.
