Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce to co-host Retail Marijuana Forum
Join the professional astronomers and staff of the MMA for a very special, early-morning Open Night at Loines Observatory. On June 24th we will catch the ‘5 planet alignment’ – a relatively rare opportunity to see all five planets visible to the naked eye – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn – in line along the ecliptic. They’ll be joined by a beautiful crescent Moon in the early morning sky. As most of the planets will not be visible this summer during the evening hours, this is a great opportunity to catch a glimpse of these great planets through the MMA telescopes – a sight you will not soon forget! Our second event will take place on the morning of July 29 and will feature views of Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.
