Highland Road Park Observatory

THE EDGE OF NIGHT

Friday, 10 March from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
No admission fee. For all ages.
Binocular recommended.

It’s not light, it’s not dark. It’s that special time called twilight, and HRPO wants to introduce you to it!

*Are all sections of the sky the same shade of blue?
*Which stars are seen first?
*Are Mercury☿ and Venus♀ or the Moon out?
*Is that moving object a plane, a satellite or space debris?
*How much actual darkness should I expect in a light-polluted city when twilight has passed?

There is no other time like twilight. Bring it into your life!

NOTE: The April lecture “Wonders of the Spring Sky” is an excellent follow-up to this session.

This program pre-empts the Friday Night Lecture Series on the last Friday in spring before Daylight Time begins, and on the first Friday in fall after Daylight Time ends.
