Telescope viewing of the planets at St. Petersburg College

Over the next few weeks, there will be a lot of activity in space with four bright planets spanning the early evening sky. Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars will all be well-placed for telescope viewing during August.

St. Petersburg College will host a telescope viewing from 8:30 – 10 p.m. Aug. 6-11 at the SPC St Petersburg/Gibbs Campus, Observatory NS building, 6605 5th Ave. N.

The observatory is located on the roof of the Natural Science building. In the event of cloudy weather, telescope viewing will be cancelled.
