FORT COLLINS - Front Range Community College is hosting two free, public stargazing events this month.
The first is 8 to 10 p.m. Friday at the Sunlight Peak Observatory on the Larimer campus, at the corner of Harmony Road and Shields Street. The second is from 8-10 p.m. Sept. 15 at Fort Collins' Stargazer Observatory, 3733 Galileo Drive.
Skies permitting, main targets include Saturn, the Ring Nebula, the Hercules Cluster and the moon.
Observatories are at outdoor temperatures, so it's suggested attendees dress for the weather. Amateur astronomers are invited to bring their own telescopes.
