Lackawanna Astronomical Society to host program at Keystone College

DALTON — The Lackawanna Astronomical Society will host an Astronomy Day program at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19 at Keystone College’s Thomas G Cupillari ’60 Astronomical Observatory. The event is free and open to the public.

The observatory’s telescopes, and those belonging to Astronomical Society members, will be used to view the crescent moon, Venus and Jupiter. There will be telescopes set up to safely view the sun before it sets over the western horizon, and stars and star clusters. Views will depend on weather and sky conditions.

Astronomical Society members will be available to answer questions and there will be an illustrated slide program and free sky maps. Refreshments will be available.

The Thomas G. Cupillari ’60 Astronomical Observatory is located approximately two miles west on Route 107 from Interstate 81 exit 202 and approximately two miles east of Fleetville on Route 107. For more information, visit www.keystone.edu/observatory.
