Enjoy Wednesday night stargazing sessions at Francis Park, weather permitting. All are welcome to join us! Stop by and take a look at the Moon, or bring your observing gear. This event is scheduled near the First Quarter Moon each month, so we provide views of craters, mountains, and shadows on the Lunar surface. Members of the St. Louis Astronomical Society also share telescope views of illusive Mercury, bright Venus, the Red Planet Mars, giant Jupiter, the ringed planet Saturn, and distant Uranus and Neptune when they are visible. You may even be able to see the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, or a distant double star!
Everyone is welcome at Francis Park Stargazing events. Bring scout groups, church groups, students, teachers, family, and friends! If you have an interest in astronomy or just enjoy the outdoors, we welcome you to visit us. This event is free.
