The Patterson Observatory and the Huachuca Astronomy Club invite you to a public viewing of the night sky held once a month on the Thursday nearest to the first quarter moon. Weather permitting, you will be able to view the heavens with the 20-inch Patterson Telescope and other instruments. Among possible sights are craters of the crescent moon, gas giant planets Uranus and Neptune, double stars, various star clusters, nebula, planetary nebula and distant galaxies.
