The Jovian Disappearing & Reappearing Act! WEATHER DEPENDENT


A very special night indeed! Come join us at the North Frontenac Dark Sky Preserve (5816 Road 506, Plevna) on Saturday February 27, 2016 at 8:30 PM to view a very rare occurrence. Beginning at approximately 9:00 pm, we will be viewing a "Steeplechase" of Jovian moons...where one of its moons (Europa) will slip behind the planet... and a few minutes later another moon (Ganymede) will re-appear from the opposite side!!!...and you can view this in REAL TIME! A few hours later on in the evening...watch another moon (Io) slip in front of the planet and cast a black shadow on the cloud tops! An eclipse on another planet!

THIS IS AN EVENT YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS!

In between we will be observing some beautiful galaxies and nebulas of the winter sky....so come in and join the FUN!
