Red Mill Farm | Rob Roy McGregor

You’re invited to join San Juan Preservation Trust staff along with Paul Walsh (amateur astronomer and content editor for to talk SPACE and view stellar gems.

March is a fantastic time to look up. M42 (the Great Nebula in Orion) and M31 (the Andromeda Galaxy – our nearest large spiral neighbor) will be visible. Venus will be up, as well as a couple globular and open clusters of note, including the famous “Double Cluster”.

Dust off your telescope and bring it to the party. Paul will have his 8″ Celestron set up for general viewing. Please bring a red filtered flashlight to protect your night vision. Hot coco and tea will be provided along with some snacks.

Time: Sunset is at 7:26pm, and civil twilight lasts until 7:57pm. You are welcome to arrive at sunset, but star viewing will begin after 8pm.

Location: Red Mill Farm Preserve.
