Stargazing at Red Mountain
Join members of the Northern Colorado Astronomical Society (NCAS) for an up-close look at the night sky over the Rockies. Telescopes will be available for viewing stars, galaxies, planets and more in a location normally closed at dusk with low light pollution. Bring your binoculars! There will also be a handout and some help available to view interesting objects without a telescope.This open house-style program is located at the Red Mountain Open Space parking lot, located north of Fort Collins. Dress warmly for evening temperatures and bring a red flashlight or headlamp if you have them. For up-to-date weather information, visit the NCAS website at www.nocoastro.org. Program is free, but registration is required.
