As darkness falls, view the stars and planets through your own telescope or one provided by the Naperville Astronomical Association (NAA), Chicago Astronomical Society (CAS), and the Northwest Suburban Astronomers. If the sky is clear, this will be an ideal night to witness the beautiful night sky. Inside the Visitors Center, NAA will give a presentation about constellations at 7:30 pm.
