The night sky is filled with interesting objects to view throughout the fall and, with the earlier sunsets and cold, clear skies, it’s a great time to view them. This program will start indoors at the visitor center. Participants will learn how to use a star chart to find fascinating objects visible with the naked eye, binoculars or small telescopes. If skies are clear, telescopes and binoculars will be available for use. Access to the viewing area may require a short walk over uneven ground. Come dressed for the weather as part of the program will be outside if the viewing is good. Registration required two days before each program date: 708.946.2216. 7:30-9PM reconnectwithnature.org
