Wiltshire, England doesn’t have the monopoly on solar events with summer solstice at Stonehenge. Philadelphia is a suitable site to take in an Equinox spectacle.
With sunrise at 5:32am on Monday and sunset at 8:26pm, the sky isn’t totally dark until almost 9 pm. We have nearly 16 hours of visible light this time of year.
Night Skies at the Observatory will happen two nights per month at the Franklin Institute this summer. Come learn about the night sky and see the two gas giants Jupiter and Saturn. Both are visible from 10pm through 3am on any clear night.
