Sorry, this astronomy adventure is full. Please stay tuned for future stargazing opportunities.


Sponsored by Harwich Conservation Trust, amateur astronomer and Harwich resident Michael Payne will lead a free, interpretive stargazing night on Tuesday, March 5th from 7:00-8:00 p.m. 

Michael will share observation tips as well as point out planets and constellations. Join us to observe the winter constellations overhead and the spring constellations as they rise in the east. Learn how to find the Pleiades and Hyades star clusters, the sword and belt of Orion, Sirius the brightest star in the sky and other bright winter stars. In the east the constellation Leo the Lion heralds the coming of spring while the Great Bear has risen in the north east. We will observe the planet Mars one last time before it disappears from the evening sky.
