July Star Party

8:30 p.m.
Menke Observatory, 31555 52nd Ave., Dixon, Iowa

Cost: Free

Beginning at sunset (around 8:32 p.m.), St. Ambrose University opens its observatory to the public for a night of stargazing. Visitors may use the observatory's telescopes or bring their own. This event is free of charge.

No Moon tonight! Jupiter and Saturn rise together in the east right around sunset, so they'll be visible all night. Stay until close to midnight, and you'll see Mars rise in the east as well.

For more information, contact Robert Mitchell at MitchellRobertC@sau.edu or 563-333-6141, or go to the Ambrose Astronomy Facebook page. On the day of the event, the same number may be called for a recorded message that will either confirm the event or report a cancellation.
