ROGERS, Ark. – Saturn’s rings are going to be noticed at the next Astronomy Night at Hobbs State Park.
Six times a year, the Sugar Creek Astronomical Society presents instructional astronomy programs at the Park’s visitor center followed by night sky viewing. According to the group’s president, Jack McDaniel, “Saturn is chasing Mars across the western night sky.”
Mars is relatively far this year, but Saturn and its rings will be a bold sight. Guests might even be able to see the divisions in the rings.
The viewing is Saturday, July 26 with the beginning astronomy class at 7:30 p.m. and night viewing at 8:30 p.m. The cost is free and the public is invited.
