Weekend Events for SHAA in NJ

The Sheep Hill Observatory in Boonton, NJ will be open to the general public tonight 6/21 and tomorrow 6/22 starting at 8:30pm. All are invited and welcome to attend. We will be viewing the "super" moon, and other objects currently in the sky.

Also on Sunday 6/23, the observatory will be open all day for solar viewing. We have a white light filter for the observatory scope and will have several other telescopes set up, including a Lunt h-alpha scope.

The observatory, which houses an 18 inch newtonian reflector, is located at the end of Ross Drive, in Boonton, NJ. Directions and more information can be found here: http://www.sheephillastro.org/

Hello,
What other times is the observatory open? I belong to NJAG and my want to see if some of our other club members would like to come up sometime in the summer.

The observatory is open the 3rd friday of each month, weather permitting of course. For any other dates, we post them to our facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SheepHillAstro
We also recently started using the NSN site again, so you can check that as well: http://nightsky.jpl.nasa.gov/event-calendar.cfm?Club_ID=257
