Stargazing at Heritage Park, Lakemoor, on 25 May

Join the Northwest Suburban Astronomers (NSA) for a public star party at Heritage Community Park, 32250 Darrell Road, in Lakemoor, Illinois, on May 25, from 8 to 10 pm.  NSA members will be on site with telescopes to share their love of astronomy with the public.  We will be observing the Planet Jupiter, with its moons, and cloud belts, galaxies in Virgo and Leo, the spectacular globular star clusters M3 and M13, and other celestial objects.

Please try to arrive by 7:45 pm.  Some of the best views of the planets, especially of Jupiter, are obtained in twilight, before the planet's glare becomes overpowering. Also remember to bring mosquito repellent and dress appropriately.  In case of rain the event will not be held.
