Star Parties Revisited:  As amateur astronomers, we like to get outside and use our telescopes and share the night sky with others. Star parties take place around our local community and around the world and no two are the same.


Former SAS President Jon Bearscove will share his experience in attending everything from local star parties to the largest star party in the world complete with rock concerts.  He will emphasize the types of star parties, what to expect, and rules of the road. Want to use your smartphone or tablet at a star party?  He'll cover tips and tricks for maximizing your fun without getting in trouble.  He will also showcase his recently updated "Star Party in a Box."
