 Start time later due to later sunset. Telescope viewing to follow, weather permitting.

Seeing the stars, constellations, planets, and the moon is a real treat any time of year but especially during the summer. As long as the clouds and the weather cooperate, we should be able to see the Summer Triangle, the North Star (Polaris), and the Big Dipper. And if nothing blocks our view, the Moon, Jupiter, and Saturn may be low on the horizon. You won’t want to miss this opportunity for a FREE training and telescope viewing session provided by amateur astronomers from the St. Louis Astronomical Society. The evening program will begin inside with

hands-on training focused on teaching you and your family how to operate and use the library telescopes now available in your public library. Weather permitting, the class will adjourn outside and apply what they have learned to find objects in the night sky.
