Home Forums RAC Main Forum Outreach Programs Public Sky Observing at Salem Glen Winery Re: Public Sky Observing at Salem Glen Winery


    Looking forward to this outreach meeting.  There should be considerably darker skies (than 125 for sure) and there's a great view of the southern sky from the parking lot (checked it out today).  In the west  Venus and Mercury will be visible (more so at 7:45pm however) but there are trees that will block the view unfortunately.  Binoculars may help people see Mercury (some for the first time) as it is close to Venus.
    BTW, we should fix the RAC webpage calendar of events for March which shows 125 Live as the venue of the outreach program for March 23rd.
