Stargazing Evening September

Stargazing Evening September

Southern Cape Astronomy Club

With the Moon just a few days after new, join us for an evening of stargazing outside the Herbarium at Pearly Beach.

Guests have been treated to some brilliant winter skies over the last few weeks. With the Milky Way at the zenith, the region between Scorpius and Sagittarius has some gorgeous deep sky objects to point the 12” to. And with Spring upon us, Aquila and Lyra can be seen in the north east with some bright planetary nebulae visible. Contact me for further information on stargazing evenings for you or your guests.
