Check out this photo taken of the Great Orion Nebula by Pomfret sixth grade students Carl Gebhardt and Kaylee Longley under the direction of Scott Holson, at the Horizons Observatory on Jan. 22.
Throughout the year, the Horizons Observatory hosts free public stargazing tours by docents using telescopes, binoculars, and naked eye observation.
To ensure clear skies for these events, a “short notice” (24-30 hours before the event) email is sent out to all those on the Horizons Observatory notification service. To be placed on the notification service, simply go to www.horizonsobservatory.org, click on “Blog,” type in your email address in the space provided, and click “Submit.” The Horizons Observatory is located on the grounds of The Pomfret School in Pomfret, Vermont.
