The Ringed Planet
Dates: August 14, 2018
Location: Meet at Group Shelter
Time: 8:30 PM to 11:00 PM

The jewel of the solar system, Saturn, will be featured at this month's star party at Oliver Lee Memorial State Park. In ancient Greek stories, Saturn is known as Chronos, or father time, due to its slow apparent motion across the evening sky. In Roman mythology, Saturn is known as the god of agriculture. See Titan and learn why it is one of the most interesting moons in the solar system. Jupiter, Scorpio and the Summer Triangle also reign in the night sky.
