Hunting Orion Star Party
On March 18th Branched Oak Observatory will be holding our very first general public event of the year; the Hunting Orion Star Party from 8 to 11PM. Our favorite Winter Constellation, Orion the Hunter will be high in the southwest. As you know, the Great Orion Nebula is one of the absolute showpieces of the night sky, and you simply can’t let Orion leave for the season without viewing this amazing deep space object. Other wonders you will have a chance to see will be the beautiful Seven Sisters Star Cluster, The Beehive Cluster, The Andromeda Galaxy, and many more.
