ADA — The Ohio Northern University Astronomy Club will host its first public viewing event of the fall, “Comet Rendezvous/Neptune Opposition,” from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday at the campus observatory.
A spacecraft called Rosetta has just reached the Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and is finding the optimum site for a November landing. While this comet will not easily be visible from earth, Comet Jacques is expected to be well-placed in the sky and bright enough for easy telescopic viewing. Neptune will also be optimally placed for viewing.
In case of cloudy skies, check for cancellations on the public events webpage at http://www2.onu.edu/~j-pinkney/astro/publicevents.html.
