View the night sky at Caspian Lake beach with the Greensboro Free Library, Thursday, Oct. 7, 6 p.m.

This telescope was purchased through a special program from the Vermont Astronomical Society that allows libraries to lend it out to individuals or families to bring home to see the night sky.

The Oct. 7 beach events features local astronomers Brad Vietje from the Northeast Kingdom Astronomy Foundation and Paul Fixx, and hopefully the night sky will be clear enough to see Venus, the moon, Saturn’s rings, and moons of Jupiter. Sunset is at 6:18 p.m.

Feel free to bring your dinner to eat while listening to the talk, followed by views through the telescope.

If you’d like to borrow the telescope, contact Emily Purdy at In the event of cloudy or rainy weather contact Emily or the library at 533.2531.
