The star in the centre of the image is the Albireo double star, surrounded by the trails of moving satellites. How many more might there be by the time we reach next year’s competition? There could be thousands of moving dots in the sky. In order to create astrophotos, photographers have to carefully plan where to place the telescope, and this will be more difficult in the future with more satellites in the way

The Moon and Mars. The Moon had just risen and was low to the horizon and slightly orange (like a sunset when the Sun is low) .

Mars is just to the upper left of the Moon. They are very close tonight.

First Quarter Moon - Member Jim Sentowski took this very orange photo of the 1st quarter Moon. It's orange because of the smoke from the California fires drifting over the Midwest. Expect spectacular sunsets for the next few days.

Perseid meteor shower 2020 under the dark skies of Samsø 🌌🌠

This year's best meteor shower was a huge success, thanks to the amazing weather and nearly New Moon! This image was created from several thousand images that were captured during the past week.

It's Perseid meteor week! The shower peaks on the night of August 11th, but you may see the occasional Perseid on any night at this time of year. The two brightest stars of summer are Vega, now almost overhead in late twilight, and Arcturus, shining in the west. Vega is white with just a touch of blue. Arcturus is a yellow-orange giant. Do their colors stand out a little better for you before dark? https://buff.ly/3gDLQ3A

On July 21, 2020 the Green Bay Common Council adopted a resolution (Sec. 8.17 Face Coverings Required) providing face coverings within the City of Green Bay, effective on July 27, 2020.

The municipal code states that every individual age five (5) and older who is present in the City of Green Bay shall wear a face covering that covers their nose and mouth in indoor areas accessible to the public.

Since our May re-opening we have been wearing masks to protect our guests, staff, and volunteers, and now we require that all guests do the same. We look forward to seeing you soon.
