Astronomy Program for 2014

Building on last year’s successful astronomy series, the Lancaster County Department of Parks & Recreation will again be hosting nighttime star watches conducted by the Astronomy Enthusiasts of Lancaster County.  However this year the location will alternate between the Lancaster County Parks’ Environmental Center and the Manheim Township Department of Recreation & Parks Planning’s Stoner Park.  All the star watches will provide a science-oriented understanding of the different types of objects to be found in the universe.  These include the moon, planets, stars and star clusters, galaxies, constellations, comets and different types of nebulae.  These objects will be viewed through telescopes set up by club members as well as by your naked eyes, so bring your interest and questions and enjoy yourself under the night sky.  

Objects - 

Stars: Antares and Alberio

Planets: Uranus and Neptune

Objects: Omega nebula & Andromeda Galaxy

Constellations: Sagittarius and Delphinus
