Before Dawn: a view from Dublin School's Perkin Observatory

The Harriers' first astronomy night in November drew a great crowd to the Perkin Observatory in Dublin, New Hampshire. It also drew clouds, unfortunately, giving us only a fleeting glimpse of Orion rising to the east. On February 28, we'll try again to use the terrific telescope to view Jupiter, the Pleiades, and other stunning objects in the winter sky. While the waxing moon will wash out some constellations, it does have a perk! Owls are likely to be calling under a bright moon this time of year, and we'll travel a short distance to listen for them on the outskirts of Dublin. Bring your warm coats, hats, and maybe even something hot to drink. We'll meet at the Observatory (at the highest point on Dublin School's campus--click here for a detailed map) at 7:00. Your RSVP is important: if skies are looking cloudy, we'll let you know that the event has been postponed.
