Astronomy Day at Night

The San Bernardino County Museum’s education division and the San Bernardino Valley Amateur Astronomers will celebrate Astronomy Day on Saturday, May 6 from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. at the museum in Redlands.

            “Astronomy Day is a great opportunity to bring the family out for some sky viewing. The astronomers are very knowledgeable and very interested in showing members of the public the wonders of the night sky.” said Jolene Redvale, Curator of Education.

The Amateur Astronomers will set up telescopes in front of the museum to share the solar system with museum visitors. Of particular note that evening will be views of two gas giants: Jupiter and Saturn.

“We will also be looking at the first quarter moon, and the detail along the terminator (the line that separates day and night) will be truly stunning,” said astronomer Chris Clarke. “This is the absolute best lunar phase for observing because the view will appear very three-dimensional.”

Telescope viewing is equally fascinating and accessible for children and adults. “Astronomy Day at Night” is open to the public at no charge.

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. Parking is free. For more information, visit
