There will be a special observing event held at Robinson Preserve on May 25th for the best veiwing of Omega Centauri. This will be a dark sky event as there will be no moon to wash out the sky. Omega Centauri is a massive globular star cluster consisting of over 1 million stars. It is actually a southern hemisphere object so it will  be about 14 above the southern horizon.

This event is weather permitting and will start at sunset and run till 11PM.
