By From page A9 | May 07, 2014

SUISUN MARSH — Residents are invited to Rush Ranch on May 16 for an evening of stargazing.

Local astronomy enthusiast Jim Jerrell will host the program that begins at 7 p.m. with a presentation in the Rush Ranch Nature Center, followed by telescope viewing after dark. Telescopes will be on hand. Participants should bring warm clothing and mosquito repellant.

To protect the night vision of viewers, participants should cover flashlights with red cellophane. Latecomers should dim their headlights.

Additional astronomy nights are scheduled June 17, July 26, Aug. 22, Sept. 27 and Oct. 24. The events are sponsored by the Rush Ranch Educational Council and Solano Land Trust, owners of Rush Ranch.

Rush Ranch is located near Suisun City, approximately 2 miles south of Highway 12 at 3521 Grizzly Island Road. For more information, go to www.rushranch.net or call 689-2639 or 422-4491.
