Mars Viewing Spurs Interest in Westport Observatory

Mars Viewing Spurs Interest in Westport Observatory

The neighborhood is hopping at Westports Rolnick Observatory on Bayberry Lane as public interest is high in viewing Mars.

The Westport Astronomical Society is hosting visitors to the observatory every evening this week from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. except Sunday.

Cloud cover could hamper tonightҒs viewing.

On Wednesday, Mars will reach its closest point to the earth in 60,000 years.

And attention procrastinators—Mars will not make another neighborly visit this close until 2287.
