Tonight is Stargazing Night at Frosty Drew Observatory and forecasts are calling for increasing clouds this afternoon with rain / snow moving in this evening and continuing until the early morning hours. Sadly, this will keep us from offering live telescopic views tonight. Regardless, we have a great night of celestial amazement set up for all of you.

Starting at 8:30 pm and continuing until 10:30 pm, Frosty Drew astronomers will broadcast live from their homes, images and data sets captured this past week and earlier in the year. We will also be hosting a special guest speaker tonight. Robert Horton of Brown University Department of Physics will join us to talk about photographing starscapes, constellations, and the International Space Station (ISS) – which he has some amazing captures of. Bob is the Brown University Astronomy Labs Manager and the Manager of Ladd Observatory in Providence, RI. Frosty Drew Sky Evangelists will serve as moderators during the broadcast and will accept questions, from you, over the YouTube chat, which they will pose to our astronomers and speakers. This is us bringing the cosmos to you during the global lock down. So sit back, grab some pizza, maybe a tasty cup of something amazing, and let us bring our favorite space place to your home.
