View night skies with UTSA telescopes at Feb. 18 'Friday Nights, Celestial Lights' event
(Feb. 16, 2011)--UTSA's faculty astronomers invite the community to the UTSA Main Campus at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 18 to enjoy "Friday Nights, Celestial Lights." The family-friendly astronomy event is free and open to the public.
Weather permitting, attendees will view the night sky using UTSA's 15-inch telescope and several 8-inch Cassegrain telescopes. Along with other celestial sights, the International Space Station will be visible before 8 p.m.
Night viewing will be from the Science Building fourth floor patio, which is wheelchair accessible. If the sky is clear, attendees can expect to see Jupiter, the Orion Nebula and possibly Saturn.
The monthly Friday night astronomy events began in 2009 as a celebration of the International Year of Astronomy, which commemorated the 400th anniversary of Galileo Galilei using a telescope to observe the heavens. Presented the third Friday each month, the event is sponsored by the UTSA Department of Physics and Astronomy.
Roadrunners who plan to learn, teach, live, work or research at UTSA this summer are invited to attend one of these town halls where members of UTSA's Public Health Task Force will share updates from their recently released 4.0 report. The town halls will be a terrific opportunity to ask questions and learn more about summer campus operations.Virtual Event
