Overview

Come join us for a night of stargazing. We will have telescopes for people to look through or feel free to bring your own. The fun starts just after sunset.

For new astronomers we are starting off the night with a program we are calling "Introduction to Stargazing".

The Moon is near its "third quarter" phase and as such the Moon does not rise until near or after midnight making skies particularly dark and favorable for stargazing.

If weather conditions force cancellation of an event, that news will be posted not later that 4PM the day of the event.  Let's hope there will be no smoke like we had in August to put a damper on our observing.

Bring a chair and maybe a blanket.

Ignore the parking lot lights in the photo, those get turned off.
