Denver Astronomical Society monthly open house

This Saturday the 13th the Denver Astronomical Society will host its August open house at Observatory Park on the University of Denver campus. The historic Chamberlin Observatory and its 20-inch Clark refractor telescope will be open to the public. DAS members will have a variety of telescopes set up on the park’s lawn next to the observatory building for public viewing, too. Activities get underway at dusk.

This is a great family activity, so if the weather cooperates make plans for an evening of stargazing, looking at Jupiter, the first quarter moon and other night sky objects.

Observatory Park is fairly easy to find. Take I-25 to Evans, go west on Evans to Fillmore St. (about four blocks east of University Blvd.), turn south on Fillmore, and go about a block and a half. You’ll see the Chamberlin Observatory building in the park, near Warren & Fillmore. DAS members generally have telescopes set up on the south & southwest side of the observatory building.
