Another fun thing to do in our part of town… Astronomy at Fox Island

September 22, 2009

Here’s something fun to do that you may have missed: Astronomy at Fox Island.

The Fort Wayne Astronomical Society has open viewing on clear Saturday nights. I noticed a poster at the library advertising these sessions, and on a quiet Saturday night a couple weeks ago, I took my kids to Fox Island. It was the first time that we had looked at the night sky through a quality telescope in an observatory. Jupiter and its moons, Andromeda, the “Wild Duck”, twin star clusters… it was all alot of fun for them and me both.

Take advantage of this free thing to do! It’s just fifteen minutes from Southwood Park…
