RECREATION | Planetary Conjunction over the Swamp 

The seasonal warmth of the days is finally stretching into the evenings, so take advantage of the more comfortable weather and check out the beautiful nighttime skies. Thousand Acre Swamp Sanctuary (1581 Jackson Road, Penfield) will host a Planetary Conjunction over the Swamp gathering on Friday, May 17, at 8:30 p.m. Weather providing and with cooperation from the clouds, Venus, Jupiter, and Mercury will be visible and in close proximity to one another on this evening. The former two celestial bodies will appear to move closer and closer to one another through May 28, when they will appear to sit within one degree of each other.

The event is free to attend. Leaders Jackson Thomas, Steve Gooding, and Diane Taggart will provide some telescopes, but personal telescopes, binoculars, and flashlights are welcome. Dress in layers in case the evening turns chilly, because we all know that regional weather is fickle. For more information, call 773-8911.
