Oliver Lee
The Great Nebula of Orion
Join Oliver Lee Memorial State Park and the Amateur Astronomers Group for the first star party of the season with views of the Orion Nebula. The first published observation of the nebula was by the Jesuit mathematician and astronomer Johann Baptist Cysat of Lucerne in his 1619. Since that time it has become one of the most observed stellar nurseries and a favorite of amateur astronomers ever since. Mercury is low near the western horizon after sunset while Venus and Uranus set a few hours later.
