On Friday, November 11th, 2005, Kennon Observatory at Ole Miss is
holding an open house for the general public. We will be observing the
Moon (a great view in this season), Mars, the Pleiades, and other
interesting objects with the observatory's telescopes.
This event is open for everyone from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm. Mars will be
at its all-time best at the later part of this time interval.
In case someone is interested in Venus, we'll have one telescope out
starting 5:30 pm. Venus goes down before 6 o'clock.
Families and children are especially welcome!
As we all know the weather changes on short notice in Oxford all the
time, the event is WEATHER PERMITTING, and is only held if no clouds
cover the Moon.
