Pensacola Beach, Florida - 32561
|Discover the greatness of the night sky on beautiful Pensacola Beach. The Escambia Amateur Astronomers' Association will offer free stargazing May 6 & 7, June 3 & 4, July 9, August 5 & 6, September 2 & 3, September 30 & October 1, 2011 at the Gulfside Pavilion. Volunteers will set up nearly 20 telescopes ranging in strength and size from duplicates of Galileo's original telescope to today's incredible large-scope devices for the public to take a peek at wonders such as Jupiter, the Milky Way and other galaxies.
For a closer look, video cameras will also be used with some of the telescopes to display images on monitors up to 100 times more clearly than viewing through the telescope with your eye alone. For individuals who would like to continue stargazing on their own, free star charts and sky calendars will be available.
