The Springfield Science Museum's large rooftop telescope will be open for public sky-gazing on Friday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m.
Jack Megas, former president of the Springfield Stars Club, will present “The Beautiful Winter Sky,” a look at the season’s stars and constellations and the mythology behind them. After the presentation, participants can use the museum telescope to view the night sky, weather permitting. In case of clouds, a planetarium show will be presented.
