The "Wolf Moon Astronomy Adventure Night" was held Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Duval County-San Diego Public Library.
Members of the Corpus Christi Astronomical Society, Karen Martin, Joey Martin, Richard Martin, Maria Krueger, Ron Randolf and Gene Glass traveled to San Diego, bringing four high powered telescopes and one high powered set of binoculars for the star party at the main public library.
Karen Martin briefly addressed the audience on the Wolf Moon Astronomy Program for the evening. Gene Glass offered specific areas of the moon for participants to look for on a detailed map of the moon.
Adults and children lined up behind each of the telescopes and binocular set to gaze at the night skies. Telescopes were trained on the Full Wolf Moon; and on Jupiter, where the bands around the planet and four Galilean Moons as well as the Orion Nebula were sharply seen to the delight of Astronomy enthusiasts.
For those interested in attending a second sky star party, the Corpus Christi Astronomical Society group will be visiting the main public library in San Diego again Saturday, March 16th at 7:30 pm.
