Rush Ranch to offer stargazing opportunity

Residents are invited to Rush Ranch on Friday 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.

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.
