Type: Outreach

Keywords: Green Lake Park Public Star Party

Held on: Apr 21, 2018 (Sat) at 08:00 PM to Apr 21, 2018 (Sat) at 10:00 PM

Location: Green Lake Bathhouse Theater, Seattle, Washington, U.S.

Event Coordinator: Mary Anderson

This Green Lake Park Public Star Party (outreach event) scheduled for Apr 21, 2018, 08:00 PM is canceled due to inclement weather, a currently very cloudy sky.  Both the Clear Sky Chart and National Weather Service forecasts predict a cloudy sky tonight until early Sunday morning, so observing will not be possible.  But don't forget the Lyrid Meteor Shower which peaks this weekend; and because  some stray meteors are often visible before and after the peak time, limited meteor viewing may be possible on Sunday night when a clear sky is predicted.

More Information

Please join us for an evening of learning about the universe by observing interesting astronomical objects, including the moon, constellations, planets, and stars.  Telescopes and/or binoculars will be provided by SAS volunteers, but participants are also welcome to bring their telescopes.  Also, 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.  Star party location is just south of the Bathhouse Theater   in the grassy peninsula area between the trail and the lake. Dress warmly and plan to meet at Green Lake for an enjoyable evening of touring the universe!
