Viewing the stars with new technology

The Door Peninsula Astronomical Society is debuting its new telescopes and viewing system for observing the stars. On Saturday, the DPAS will host the first observation night of the year at the Leif Everson Observatory in Sturgeon Bay starting at 7:00 PM. David Lenius is in charge of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society and he says it should be a spectacular start in viewing the winter constellations and other star clusters. The whole night takes place inside the observatory with the heat on. Lenius says that even the people running the observation night can stay inside now thanks to the new technology.



The DPAS will host a public viewing the first or second Saturday night of every month. February's public viewing is scheduled for the 2nd.
