A planned Night Sky Exploration at Chapman State Park in Pennsylvania was hosted by Tom Traub from the Martz Observatory on June 17th at 8:00 pm. The event was announced by Jen Moore, Environmental Education Specialist PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Bureau of State Parks. Tom’s invitation was to focus on learning the essentials of stargazing and describe where to discover the currently visible planets, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter adorning the night sky, and include a selection of deep sky objects. It was suggested visitors who had a telescope of their own to bring it to the park to get some tips on from an expert on using it. The observatory was represented by Tom Traub and Brian Ceci who managed the telescopes for the group. They used the Park’s Dobsonian telescope and Tom’s own 8 inch telescope. Prior to sunset, those who attended had an opportunity to view the sun in the 8 inch which was fitted temporarily with a special solar filter. As nightfall descended the group of mostly campers expanded and clearly enjoyed looking through both telescopes under a great sky. This was another in a series of off-site outreach programs offered to the public this season by volunteer Martz/Kohl members.
