Overview

This public "Star Gaze" event is authorized by the city of Snoqualmie, 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 "new Moon" phase and as such the Moon does not appear in the skies over Snoqualmie making it very dark and 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.
