At 8:30 p.m., retired director of Staerkel Planetarium David Leake will give a short talk, then you can check out the show for rest of the evening. Apparently peak visibility will be around 2 a.m., but it should be visible throughout the night if you can’t last that long.
The program is free, and you should bring a chair or blanket. It will be cancelled if skies are cloudy.
