This public "Star Gaze" event is authorized by the city of Shoreline, Parks & Recreation Department and is free of charge.  
Experienced astronomers from the Seattle Astronomical Society (SAS) volunteer their time and telescopes and binoculars to share with the public.  Everyone is welcome including families with children.
The Moon is near its "third quarter" phase and as such the Moon does not rise until near or after midnight making Shoreline skies particularly dark and favorable for stargazing.
