Covington Parks & Recreation sponsors monthly star parties observing the moon, planets, constellations and interesting astronomical objects. Volunteer astronomers from the Seattle Astronomical Society and Boeing Employees' Astronomical Society will provide telescopes and assist guests of all ages to view available celestial objects of the season.
It is especially important to dress warmly and bring only dim, red lights. No white flashlights please.
Visit the Skymaps web site <www.skymaps.com> to discover the viewable objects for the current month. Print and bring your personal observing plan to the volunteer astronomers to see how many night sky objects you can see for yourself.
