"Starry Evergreen" consists of stargazers belonging to the San Jose Evergreen Community College District, in addition to several local residents near the Evergreen Valley College campus. Montgomery Hill Observatory is located at Evergreen Valley College, San Jose. We offer free Astronomy talks, stargazing nights, Astronomy workshops and field trips to the public each month.

Our participant members consist of several children and parents, EVC and SJCC professors and staff, astronomy amateurs, astro-photographers, students, all sharing their passion for the skies. The listed activities are weather dependent. To be a member of this group you must be 18 or older.

Feb. 22, 2019 Free Public Stargazing event at the MHO

Montgomery Hill Observatory

Free Public Stargazing event at the Montgomery Hill Observatory Friday, February 22, 2019. STARGAZING ACTIVITY IS WEATHER DEPENDENT. Hi All, Enjoy a free public stargazing event at the Montgomery Hill Observatory from 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm. View the skies with our two observatories and several telescopes set out for the public. Kids learn how to use telescopes and identify objects in the sky! Hounds of Winter & the Great Bear Rising + the Little Bear The Hounds of Winter are following their master Orion the Hunter, Canis Major and Canis Minor, within the constellation Canis Major Sirius-A is the brightest star in all of the night sky. With a visual magnitude of -1.46, only a few of our Solar system planets are brighter. And Sirius-A is only 8.6 light years away from Earth. The other Hound, Canis Minor has the 8th brightest star in the night sky Procyon, it shines at a magnitude 0.34 and is 11.4 light years away from Earth. If you connect the three stars Sirius, Procyon and Betelgeuse (in Orion) you will see the Winter Triangle. Look to the north around 9PM and you can see the Great Bear rising AKA Ursa Major. The Big Dipper makes up the tail and body of Ursa Major. Let see if we can finds Bode's Galaxy (M81) in the Big Bear, using the C-14 telescope in the ROR observatory. The two stars in the the Big Dipper (part of Ursa Major) Dubhe and Merak, if you draw a imaginary line thru these two stars and extend the line 34° it will guide you to Polaris the North star, the tail end of Ursa Minor - the Little Bear. The Constellation Leo the Lion will be rising in the sky, try to find the star Regulus the Alpha star in Leo. Regulus will be near the Ecliptic, the Ecliptic is the circular path on the Celestial sphere that the Sun and planets follow over the course of a year Lets take a look at the Trapezium with is inside of the heart of the Orion Nebula (M42). I'll put a Skyglow Broadband filter on the C-14 telescope to help block out the very bright glow of the Nebula gases. There are 10 main stars within the Trapezium, lets see how many we can count. M42 is a stellar nursery for new stars. Keep looking up you're bound to find something new. Rick Parking: Free Parking after 6:00 PM in the parking lot #6 for this event.

Hi All, Enjoy a free public stargazing event at the Montgomery Hill Observatory from 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm. View the skies with our two observatories and several telescopes set out for the public. Kids learn how to use telescopes and identify objects in the sky! With the Vernal Equinox arriving on March 20th, the Sun will shine directly on the equator and the length of day and night are nearly equal. The Winter Constellations are now setting in the west and the Spring Constellations are rising in the east. Auriga, Orion , Taurus, Lepus, Perseus, Pleiades will still be visible for a couple of months. Just East of Taurus the Bull is the constellation Gemini the Twins, Pollux and Castor are the 2 brightest stars in the constellation Gemini and both stars are double stars too. Castor being the brightest of the two was study by the famous astronomer William Hershel for 30 years. Available for viewing will be M42 Orion nebula. It's a star forming region that is 1,350 light years from Earth. Inside of the nebula center is a cluster of 4 young stars call the Trapezium. This area makes up the "Sword of Orion" just below "The Belt of Orion". Above Orion you'll find Taurus the Bull, look at his Red eye - Alpha Tauri a red giant star aka Aldebaran. Look a little higher above Aldebaran you'll see the 7 sisters "The Pleiades" M45 riding on the back of the Bull. The Pleiades are also know as the Seven Sisters, Nakshatra Krittika, Subaru and Tianquiztli. The Beehive open cluster (M44) will be east of the Meridian in the Constellation Cancer, this open star cluster is a group of 50 young stars 570 light-years from Earth. Keep looking up you're bound to find something new. Rick Parking: Free Parking after 6:00 PM in the parking lot #6 for this event.
