Kopernik Winter Star Party Planning Underway

Get ready to join Kopernik Observatory & Science Center (KOSC) and the Kopernik Astronomical Society (KAS) in their annual Winter Star Party.  Come brave the chilly elements to observe under the crystal clear, dark skies.  The northeast winter skies often provide some of the most stable observing with humidity free skies, typically better than any other time of the year.

Planning for the 2013 Kopernik Winter Star Party is underway.  Get ready for a great action packed Saturday.  Thought provoking NASA astronomer Michelle Thaller will be the keynote speaker! A full schedule will be developed soon. See the full moon, Jupiter, Pleiades star cluster, double stars and more!
