The Mineola Nature Preserve in conjunction with
The Astronomical Society of East Texas
a STAR GAZING
at the Mineola Nature Preserve
on Saturday, November 18th.
This is a free program and everyone is invited. The activity begins about 7:45 PM so you can see where we will be and will end about 9 PM. Try to arrive by 7 PM. The location will be at the Amphitheater next to the Pavilion or the hill just west of Bob’s Pond. The program is a group exercise in identifying objects in the night sky that can be seen with binoculars or the naked eye (Naked Eye Astronomy). We could have a visit from the International Space Station and possible rare signals from Iridium flares that evening.
This is a weather permitting program. In the event of inclement weather or cloud cover, the program will be cancelled. A “CANCELLED” notice will be posted in the “Calendar” page of the Society’s website: www.asetexas.org/calendar or our Facebook page on the date, a sign “NO STAR GAZING” will be posted at the Preserve entrance.
Please keep an eye on the weather and dress appropriately for it. Weather is cooler now but wear clothing to ward off stray mosquitoes. If you bring mosquito repellant, do not bring aerosols; use wipes instead.
