Cancelled – C.M. Crockett Public Night @ C.M. Crockett Park
Jun 8 @ 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Cancelled - C.M. Crockett Public Night @ C.M. Crockett Park | Midland | Virginia | United States

The June Public Night at C. M. Crockett Park is canceled due to cloud cover.  ClearSkyChart predicts only 40 to 80 percent of the sky obscured by clouds but all of the other weather forecasts predict 90% or more coverage.  Most also forecast a significant chance of precipitation. Not a suitable evening for stargazing.

 Hope for better conditions to come.  Soon, please.

Jupiter at Opposition
Jun 10 all-day

The giant planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long. This is the best time to view and photograph Jupiter and its moons. A medium-sized telescope should be able to show you some of the details in Jupiter’s cloud bands. A good pair of binoculars should allow you to see Jupiter’s four largest moons, appearing as bright dots on either side of the planet
