Christmas "star" viewing still on with DPAS

Stargazers will still be able to get expert guidance from the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society to view the “Christmas Star” conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter.  That's with COVID-19 precautions in place.  From Saturday, December 19th through Monday, December 21st,  the DPAS campus will be open to everyone hoping to glimpse the two largest planets in our solar system pass at their closet point since the Middle Ages.  By Monday evening it will almost appear that the two are one large planet in the western sky just after sunset.  Visitors will have to social distance and wear masks. Tom Gwilym, DPAS Vice President, also says the society's telescopes won't be available for use.  However, members will be on hand to help those who bring their own gear.

Gwilym recommends checking the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society Facebook page for updates on weather and sky conditions.
