Lincoln Memorial Garden welcomes Dr. John Martin from the University of Illinois at Springfield’s Astronomy and Physics program who will talk about the amazing objects that can be seen overhead at night. Then Sangamon Astronomical Society members will share views of the night sky through their telescopes. All ages can register for this free program by phoning the Garden. Donations are always accepted. Sunday, Aug. 28, has been set as a rain date in case conditions are not favorable for night sky viewing. The time remains the same.
