Tonight, a rare conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will occur, called "The Great Conjunction". On this night, Jupiter and Saturn will be only 0° 7' apart. In a telescope, you will be able to observe both Jupiter and Saturn together. The last time this happened was over 20 years ago, in the year 2000.
Frosty Drew Observatory will open from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm, weather permitting to celebrate this fabulous event. We will have the primary telescope setup on the conjunction, with secondary telescopes available for alternative views of the cosmos, including views of the First Quarter Moon. Astronomers will be available to answer your questions and to celebrate the view with you.
So add a little astro to your week of holiday festivities and celebrate a special evening out under The Great Conjunction of 2020 at Frosty Drew Observatory!
