More Information

After well over a year since our last gathering, please join us on Saturday, September 11th for the return of the Paramount Park Star Party in nearby Shoreline! (As always, this event is weather dependent so please check back) 

We will have a special opportunity to catch Juipter (along with a transit of the moon Io!), Saturn, the moon, as well as dark skies for Deep Sky Objects. 

We hope you can join us again or for the first time! (Don't forget to bring a red light headlamp if you have one available)

Timeline

Sunset: 7:28 PM

Moonset: 9:55 PM

Transit of Io: Visible until 10:45 PM

Great Red Spot appears: 11:15 PM

Please join us for an evening of learning about the universe by observing interesting astronomical objects, including the moon, constellations, planets, and stars. Guests and members are encouraged to bring their telescopes and binoculars if available and SAS volunteers will provide additional telescopes and binoculars for all to enjoy. Participants might want to bring their favorite cell phone sky app or a sky map from www.skymaps.com , but these helps are not required. Dress warmly.

Paramount Park features great sightlines and relatively dark skies for both planetary and deep sky options.

Paramont Park, officially named Paramount School Park, is located at 15300 8th Ave NE in Shoreline. Be careful as there is a similarly named Paramount Open Space nearby. There is both a parking lot and ample street parking.
