November 2014 – Get your Starry Trails

astro2   November is here! Now that we have changed back our clocks to Eastern Standard Time, we can go outside and enjoy an evening of stargazing right after dinner! The evenings are getting colder, so we will need to put on our winter coats, gloves, hats and maybe boots. If you are lucky enough to have a good south, southwestern view, you will be able to see the red planet Mars after sunset.

We will begin our hike at 7:00 pm. Grab your Starry Trail map & binoculars and let’s go!
