We all know the CBEC property is beautiful during the day, but did you know we have fantastic views of the night’s sky? Join us and travel through the solar system into the Milky Way – and possibly even to other galaxies – with CBEC volunteer Andy Lomax, who is a retired naval oceanographer and former Deputy Superintendent of the U.S. Naval Observatory, as we launch our “Astrogaze on the Bay” program.
Throughout the year, Andy will be offering 1- to 1.5-hour “sneak peeks” into the universe, using telescopes to view various astrological features like stars, planets, and meteor showers, in combination with learning the constellations and a little astronomy. Themes for the programs will be based on the year’s lunar activity. Feel free to bring your own telescopes and/or binoculars too.
Sessions are capped at 20 participants, and registration is required.
$5 for CBEC members
$10 for non-members
Stay tuned for more dates to be announced soon.
