Aug 23 Another Sky Event! Skywatch at the Bonebrake Center - Come to the Bonebrake Center of Nature and History on Monday, August 23, 2018 to experience views of the solar system and the galaxy. The event will start at 7:30 p.m. so the fading light will give us a chance for introductions of our volunteers and orient the visitors to the telescopes they will be using. As the sky starts to darken, the focus will be on the Moon, as the craters become sharper. The line between the bright side of the Moon and darkness represents places where the Sun is rising on the Moon. In those places, there will be the most definition on the Moon’s surface. Some of the Moon’s most interesting features and craters will be on display this night. For anyone eager to take Moon photos, we’ll have a holder to help you get an impressive picture. We’ll get a very distant view of Venus’s solid white cloud cover. The planet will look a little oblong in its gibbous phase. Venus will be a constant evening sky feature for most of 2018. Eventually we will start to see some of the brighter stars from the winter and spring constellations. Usually we see the brightest star in the night sky, Sirius, before the other stars. Through the telescope, Sirius is a sizzling bright dot. It won’t be long before more starts are visible, making constellations like Orion and Gemini visible. Much later—as the wintye4r constellations set in the west, we’ll see more the spring constellations like Ursa Major and Bootes. When the sky fully darkens, we can explore the Moon’s craters, double stars, and star clusters. If the skies are very dark, we can view a few galaxies through the telescopes, and maybe our own galaxy, the Milky Way—with our unaided eyes! We can also use the telescope to reveal systems with multiple stars, doubles and triples. We can compare our views of constellations before and after the sky darkens and as our eyes adapt to the lower light level. The sky is full of interesting objects. We are hoping to send guests home with great viewing memories and, of course, we need good skies for the best result. A few clouds are ok, but if the weather is very poor or rain is possible, we’ll need to cancel the event. Skywatches are always fun, with handouts, answers to questions, and sometimes a surprise or two! Dress for the weather and come enjoy the views and experience a tour of the sky. This program is appropriate for the whole family and will be mostly outdoors. There will be access to the house and light snacks. The suggested donation is $1.00 per person or $5.00 for the whole family, but no one will be turned away. Registration is not required, but feel free to leave a message at the Bonebrake Center (573.729.3400) or e-mail at for more information. If it appears the night sky will be too cloudy, the program will be postponed. Registrants may call or text 573-247-0279 on the afternoon of Monday, April 24, if there is a question about possible cancellation. 7:30 pmBonebrake Center of Nature and History- 601 N Hickory St.729-3400
