The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

Planetary get-together


March 28, 2018

Contributed: Troy Carpenter, Goldendale Observatory

Troy Carpenter at the Goldendale Observatory shot this dramatic image of the moon and Venus and Mars setting together in the western sky at 8:29

p.m. March 18. Venus is the brighter object in the trees, and Mars is the bright object to the upper right of that. You can also see the "Earthshine" illuminating the dark portion of the

moon. While the Observatory is undergoing renovation, you can still see shows at its temporary location at Stonehenge starting April 5. They'll be open Thursday through Sunday at 4

p.m. with an evening show at 8:30 p.m. The remodel is expected to be completed by summer 2019.
