In collaboration with the Geneva Lake Dark Sky Initiative, Yerkes Observatory will be hosting a star party, even if it is cloudy or raining. This is a family event in which visitors can admire the heavens. The stars will join planet Jupiter and its moons which will be lovely viewed through telescopes.
Even if it is too cloudy to observe, there will be many other things to do including hands-on activities and presentations. Because of scheduling conflict there will not be a tour of the famous 40-inch Great Refractor that is housed in the 90-foot in diameter dome.
