Overview

This public star party 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 the star party.
Check the SAS website < www.seattleastro.org > frequently for star party 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 party events, and for outreach opportunities, meetings and membership information.
