Highland Road Park Observatory
Sunday, 26 May and Monday, 27 May
For two nights three of our sibling planets will form a tight triangle in the west-northwest. HRPO personnel will have telescopes ready at the back of the Burbank Soccer Complex, between the long lake and the Dog Park. Patrons are encouraged to bring binoculars.
The planets involved are…
All three planets will be in the constellation Taurus—the same constellation the Sun will be at that time.
This will be the last triple-planet conjunction able to be viewed with the unaided eye until 2026. Don’t miss this beautiful sight!
NOTE: Attending the Triple Planetary Conjunction earns an Expedition BREC participant three points. Though not one of the originally listed events in the Passport, it will be a “write-in” stamp.
All BREC park rules apply during this event.
