Earth meets Sky for a star party!

The Chattanooga Arboretum and Nature Center teamed up with the Barnard Astronomical Society for a conjunction of Earth and Sky on October 13th, 1012.  

Susan Russell, School and Program Director for the Arboretum and Nature center was happy to host a star party celebrating the skies.  They were joined by ten members of the public, once of which brought their own 8 inch Dobsonian.  The BAS brought nine of their own telescopes and two sets of binoculars for everyone to enjoy.  Messier 11 was especially impressive and Uranus was visible as well!

The BAS hopes to schedule another star party with the Chattanooga Arboretum and Nature Center soon!  The scenery is just too hard to pass up!
