College Park observatory open Wednesday night

While the moon won’t be full until Friday, skygazers will hope for a break in the clouds when the observatory at College Park School opens its doors on Wednesday.

Organizers at the school are inviting folks to drop in between 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. by entering through the front of the school and then heading upstairs to the library.

The full moon or harvest moon is scheduled for 3:57 a.m. on Sep. 29. Currently it is in its Waxing Gibbous phase meaning that more of the moon will begin to shine brighter as it approaches full moon on Friday.

The moon is currently in the constellation of Capricornus with moon rise at 6:56 p.m.

The weather forecast for Wednesday evening calls for partly cloudy skies and the temperature around 17C.
