Crawford Park District plans Viewing the Night Sky

Staff report

The Crawford Park District invites the public to join members of the newly formed, Lowe-Volk Astronomy Club, as they share their knowledge and telescope skills with all who are interested in the celestial sights.

The program will be held 7 p.m. Nov. 28 at Lowe-Volk Park.

Program attendees will have the opportunity to observe the Reflection Nebulae, called the Pleiades. The program will show the moon rising as a Waning Gibbons 91% full. As the evening progresses, Orion rises and visitors will see Rigel, Betelgeuse and the Great Nebulae of Orion.

Participants can bring their own telescope or allow the volunteers to assist with those provided. Lowe-Volk Park is located 3 miles north of US Route 30.
