[February 21, 2013]  McLEAN -- The first public astronomy viewing session of the year at Sugar Grove Nature Center will be on March 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. Join the Twin City Amateur Astronomers as they explore the stars and other prominent sky objects.

The March session will focus on Jupiter and the Galilean moons -- a large planet with large moons. Jupiter, the king of our solar system, keeps many secrets and holds many surprises in his lofty realm.

The presentation will be followed by a sky tour using a laser pointer and telescope viewing.

The program will be canceled in the event of active rain. If the night is cloudy or overcast, only the presentation will be given and tours of the Sugar Grove Observatory will be available.

The program is free and no registration is required.
