Overview

This public "Star Gaze" event is authorized by the city of Covington, Parks & Recreation Department and is free of charge.  
Experienced astronomer volunteers from the Seattle Astronomical Society (SAS) bring their telescopes and binoculars to share with the public.  Everyone is welcome including families with children.
The Moon is near its "first quarter" phase and as such the Cresent Moon follows the setting Sun by less than ninety degrees and pleasantly preceeds fairly  dark skies, favorable for stargazing.
Check the SAS website < www.seattleastro.org > frequently for star gazing event status.  If weather conditions force cancellation of an event, that news will be posted not later that 4PM the day of the event.  
Visit the SAS website for other Puget Sound star gazing events, and for outreach opportunities, meetings and membership information.
