Telescopes Around Chicago

June 17, 2014 7:54 PM | Linda Zanieski (Administrator)

From the Adler Planetarium E-News:

Join Adler astronomers and volunteers at Chicago's parks and schools this summer for free telescope observing. 

Daytime observers can view the Sun safely through special filters to see its sunspots and prominences, while night time observers can potentially get a glimpse of the rings of Saturn and its largest moon, Titan, as well as the red planet, Mars.
