The Sky This Month

October 16, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

What’s happening in the sky this month?
Friday, October 16
8-9 p.m.

Chabot Space & Science Center and Oaklandside are teaming up for a special tour of the October nighttime sky. Learn about this month’s constellations and bright stars with Chabot’s astronomers and Oaklandside community reporter Azucena Rasilla. Together, we will discuss what’s new in the sky this month and answer questions from local Oaklandside readers.

About Azucena Rasilla

Azucena Rasilla is an East Oakland native, a bilingual journalist reporting in Spanish and in English, and a longtime reporter on Oakland arts, culture, and community. As an independent local journalist, she has reported for outlets like KQED Arts and the San Francisco Chronicle. She was also an associate editor at East Bay Express. She likes helping readers navigate Oakland’s rich artistic and creative landscapes through a wide range of innovative digital approaches.

About Oaklandside

The Oaklandside is a nonprofit newsroom powered by Cityside, a nonpartisan, nonprofit media organization committed to building community through local journalism. Cityside also publishes Berkeleyside.

The newsroom amplifies community voices, share the power of real information and investigate systems, not just symptoms.
Our newsroom is guided by a set of founding values, which we developed after spending months asking Oaklanders about how local journalism can help make their daily lives better and help build a more informed, more equitable city. You can learn more about that work, and what we learned.

You can find the live video stream on our Facebook page and in the Facebook event discussion.
