Borrow a Telescope from the Library

Did you know that this is the perfect time to spot Jupiter in the morning sky? During the last few weeks of November, the planet is the second brightest object in the sky before sunrise. According to The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center, you will be able “to glimpse one or two moons with binoculars” but with a good telescope, you may “run out of fingers to count” the moons you’ll see (there are 63 known moons orbiting Jupiter)!
Reserve the Library's Orion StarBlast 4.5" Altazimuth Reflector telescope today. You may even get a look at Jupiter’s Great Red Spot—a storm that Galileo saw in 1610 with his very first telescope!
