Come Stargazing with the North Shore Amateur Astronomy Club and the Lake Gardner Improvement Association at Battis Farm! See open clusters, planetary nebula, and galaxies millions of light years away. NSAAC volunteers will be on hand to show deep space objects through their telescopes. Saturn will be above the horizon for the first half of the event, its rings and brighter moons will be visible in the telescopes.
