Astronomy & Dark Skies – Rescheduled to September 14

September 14 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Free

In conjunction with our recent article on Dark Skies, we are pleased to be partnering with the Lyme Land Trust who have been kind enough to open their program to our members. Young or old, experienced or totally unfamiliar, the Lyme Land Trust’s Astronomy team looks forward to exposing you to our uniquely dark skies here in Lyme. The new observatory is in full motion. The Lyme Land Trust offers viewing sessions once a month near the new moon. Our cohorts have several different telescopes that are on display for your observing pleasure, and we now are pleased to have a modern 14″ Schmidt-Cassegrain housed in a permanent observatory structure.

While there is no charge, registration is required and is limited to 20 members. Registrations: Please Click HERE  and choose the September 8 session. Please enter ELT after your first name to identify yourself as an ELT Member. Directions to the site and special guidance for those with heavy astronomy equipment will be provided upon registration. Park in the designated area and walk to the observing field with its amazing panoramic views of the heavens. Dress for temperatures 10-20 degrees lower than forecast for your comfort. No white lights at the field site, please.

We will meet at the Town Hall Parking Lot at 7:00 PM to carpool over to the observation site. We will depart promptly at 7:15 PM. More information HERE. Bad weather cancels. Contacts: Alan Sheiness, Lyme Land Trust, alan.sheiness@icloud.com
