Have you ever wondered what's really out there in the night sky? Wished you could zoom in on cosmic marvels? What if you had a handful of astronomers at your elbow, showing the way, answering your questions in plain language? That's a Focus Night at Robert Ferguson Observatory! These are small groups so you get plenty of scope time, and a chance to focus on-- Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system, and there's a LOT going on there! Learn about the Great Red Spot, the four Galilean moons, missions to Jupiter, and much more. If you've never seen Jupiter in a telescope, you're missing out on the thrill of a lifetime. But that's not all! Other spectacles of the night sky, including nebulae and galaxies, also await. Program info: In the observatory classroom you'll hear an in-depth presentation. Afterward, we move outside to three different telescopes for a direct look. In our new 40-inch reflector, one of the largest public telescopes in California, you can see details of deep-space objects that will leave you murmuring in awe. The observatory is a 501(3)(c) institution, and all proceeds from this event go towards maintaining its many public education programs.
