The “Mile of Telescopes” in Louisville, Kentucky
Friday is Kentucky, Oaks day, the “Fillies Kentucky Derby”. It is also Derby Eve in Louisville as our two week long celebration of the “Greatest Two Minutes in Sports” comes to a climax.
This evening join members of the Louisville Astronomical Society along Bardstown road in the Louisville Highlands for the “Mile of Telescopes”. LAS folks will set up telescopes from Eastern Parkway west to share views of the crescent Moon and Saturn. The International Space Station will punctuate the evening with a visible pass from NW to SE at 8:43 pm. The Moon will be framed by the star Capella above right and Betelgeuse below left.
