Astronomy Night at Rush Ranch 08/13/21
August 13 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Join our local Astronomy enthusiast, Jon Pannier at Rush Ranch for TWO special astronomy classes at Rush Ranch! First class will be on Friday, August 13th at 8pm and the Second will be on Friday, September 10th at 8pm.
The indoor presentation lasts about an hour. The outdoor viewing will begin at dark. Telescopes will be on hand. Personal scopes are welcome, but you should be familiar with their set up and arrive before dark.
Children are welcome, but must be supervised at all times. Warm clothing and mosquito repellant are encouraged. To protect night vision, flashlights must be covered with red cellophane, available at the ranch, and late-comers
are asked to dim their headlights.
Clouds or Inclement weather will force cancellation of the outdoor part of the event, but the Indoor presentation will still be held. Admission and Parking are free, but donations are gratefully accepted. The event is brought to you by the Rush Ranch Education Council and Solano Land Trust, owner of Rush Ranch.
