  • Neighborhood Star Party Host for How To Volunteer

    3 months ago

    We are looking for members that want to share astronomy with your friends and neighbors. These are called Neighborhood star parties. The idea is you choose a night, invite friends and neighbors over for a fun get together, have the telescope setup, and show them some things in the night sky. Have neighbors bring a chair, blanket, snacks and sit out under the stars and just be neighborly. We will help get you setup and training is minimal. If you would like to start one of these please contact Jon at education@seattleastro.org

  • Star Field Complex Volunteer for How To Volunteer

    3 months ago

    Work on the new dark sky site will begin in May. We need volunteers who want to help clear rocks, help smooth out the telescope field, build pads, and generally help develop the site. We will also need a dedicated group of "Friends of the Star Field Complex", these are volunteers that help manage and maintain it. If either or both of these sound interesting to you then please reach out to starfieldcomplex@seattleastro.org

  • Star Party Volunteer for How To Volunteer

    3 months ago

    We put on up to 4 public star parties each month. We are in constant need of volunteers at our star parties to help direct peole, hand out flyers, and operate telescopes. If you like talking to people and showing them the night sky then you would be great for this. If you think you have a great place to have a star party at and would like to host we are always looking for more locations. Contact Jon at Education@seattleastro.org for more information.
