As summer turns to fall, Jupiter and a host of celestial sights will fall out of view for the next several months. Before they go away, the public will have a chance to get an astronomer’s eye view of them at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

The A&M-Kingsville physics department and the Kingsville Astronomical Society will host a free public viewing Thursday, Oct. 11 at 7:30 p.m. through the 16-inch telescope at Lon C. Hill Hall, on the A&M-Kingsville campus.

On view will be Jupiter, the Hourglass or Lagoon Nebula, the M-5 globular cluster and the Triffid Nebula, among others.

For more information, call 361-593-2622.
