This year’s astronomy-themed event series Cosmic Nights in Redlands took off for the stars on Saturday, March 12 at San Bernardino County Museum.

The museum is a partner of San Bernardino Valley Amateur Astronomers to offer the events, which will continue in the spring.

The group noted on its website, sbvaa.orgthat Uranus and the moon were available for viewing on Saturday, along with “all the winter wonders like the Orion Nebula.”

The outdoor series continues from 7-10 p.m. on April 9, weather permitting, at the museum, located at 2024 Orange Tree Lane.
