TRIPLE CONJUNCTION WITH MOON

Friday 28 August
from 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm
No admission fee. For all ages.
Binoculars recommended.

This astounding sight is a “one night only” thrill. The Moon and two planets will form a fairly large triangle (Saturn♄ will be as far apart as possible from the others for its proximity to still earn the label “conjunction”).

The objects involved in this event (in order from west to east) are…

WAXING GIBBOUS MOON:

JUPITER♃:

SATURN♄:

During the final fifteen minutes of the program, attempted viewing of Neptune♆ will occur.
