Star Party Tonight

Comet Pan-STARRS will make it's North Hemisphere debut tonight. Space.com has an excellent article on how to spot the comet. If you're in Tallahassee, I'll be at the JR Alford Greenway tonight with my telescope. You are invited to join me. After everyone has seen the comet, we should also have good views of Jupiter and the Orion Nebula–both are beautiful sights in a telescope. We'll start looking right at sunset.

What: Comet Pan-STARRS viewing, with Jupiter and Orion as well.
When: March 7, 2013 starting at 6 PM Eastern.
Where: JR Alford Greenway, Tallahassee
