A “Skywatch” is a gathering of amateur astronomers hosted by the NH Astronomical Society. A Skywatch is by definition “beginner-friendly” and its focus is on providing the most enjoyable and educational experience possible! NHAS members will arrive before sunset, set up their equipment and choose their celestial targets. We hope to find deep sky objects like distant galaxies in our dark sky conditions here in Strafford. Please join us with your telescopes and dress warm!
The Hill Library in partnership with the New New Hampshire Astronomical Society are proud to present SKYWATCH!
Uncooperative weather date is Wednesday, 7PM, October 19th.
We will begin at 7PM with an indoor educational slideshow that will cover “What’s Up In Tonight’s Sky” and provide hints and tips for favorable viewing later in the evening. » Read more
