Men’s Astronomy Expedition
December 10, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join the men of Jacob’s Well on Saturday evening, December 10th at the Powell Observatory to view the night sky through their telescope, hang out, and do some astronomy together. This time we’ll take the rare opportunity to observe a Martian “opposition event,” which occurs only every 26 months when the earth passes between Mars and the sun. Mars will be fully illuminated by the sun as well as at its closest point to the earth, creating an optimal viewing opportunity (even the polar caps on Mars will be visible through a telescope!). Afterwards you are welcome to continue the conversation with us at a local pub or home – details TBA.
There will be a $5 entry fee per person; CASH only, paid at the door.
Date: Saturday, December 10th
Location: Powell Observatory, 26500 Melrose Street, Louisburg, KS 66053
