- September 8 at Wolf’s Hollow County Party, West Fallowfield. Stay tuned for timing and parking instructions.
- Join the Atglen Public Library and the Chester County Astronomical Society for a night under the stars at Wolf’s Hollow County Park. As the sky darkens after sunset, we’ll see four planets appear in the sky. Low in the west will be Venus, our sister planet. In the southwest will be Jupiter, the king of the planets and due south will be the ringed beauty Saturn. Bright Mars will be rising in the southeast and will shine like a red beacon. As the sky becomes fully dark the constellations and stars will emerge. The Big Dipper will be “holding water” in the northwest and the Summer Triangle will be overhead. In the south we will see many “deep sky” objects in the constellations Scorpius and Sagittarius. We’ll see open clusters, globular clusters, galaxies and nebula.
