Gazing in the Garden

Saturday, May 23, 2015
Dusk (~7:30) to 10 pm

Gazing in the Garden is in partnership with the Oglethorpe Astronomical Association and is a night of skygazing. First off, you can enjoy a 1950s sci-fi movie before skygazing begins since just after sunset is the best viewing of tonight's waxing crescent moon. We'll also gaze for stars, Saturn and Jupiter and nebulae. This popular event remains free and open to the public. Gazing in the Garden is dependent on the weather. More ->
