Calling all Amateur Astronomers

The Swansea Public Library invites the public to a night of planet and star gazing in the back parking lot on Friday August 1, 2014 at 8:30PM as part of the Fizz, Boom, Read summer program. 

Join Bruce DiDucca and volunteers from the Astronomical Society of Southern New England as they present a demonstration of the “Scale of the Solar System” along with the opportunity to observe the Moon, Mars, Saturn and possibly the double star Alberio.  Viewing other objects will depend on how dark the night sky is and there will be ample time for Q and A. 

The ASSNE are a group of amateur astronomers from in and around the south coastal Massachusetts/ Rhode Island area. Membership represents a wide range of astronomical interests including visual observing to advanced astrophotography. Whether you enjoy hunting comets, tracking asteroids, practicing binocular astronomy, telescope building or are just a planet lover and sun enthusiast, members share a common passion for amateur astronomy.  Join us for a wonderful evening under the stars.  Viewing will depend on weather conditions, so please contact the library with any questions.

We are having a fun summer at the Swansea Public Library.  Sign up today for star gazing.  It’s all happening on Main Street, in Historic Swansea Village. For more information, contact Youth Services Librarian Carol Gafford at
