    This month's topic is "Puzzles in Galaxy Evolution" by Professor Charles Louis Steinhardt professor at the Cosmic Dawn Center, part of the Niels Bohr Institute (University of Copenhagen)

    Professor Steinhardt will discuss some of the recent advances in galaxy evolution and some of the things that, as a result, we have discovered we really don’t understand about how galaxies are assembled in the early Universe

    The monthly general meeting is as always, Open to the Public. Prior to the General Meeting, SAS volunteer staff offer a welcome table from 7:00PM to 7:30PM. New member and guests are invited to ask questions and meet some of the existing members.  The meeting begins at 7:30pm with SAS business, followed by the lecture.

Driving Directions to Green Lake

The address for Green Lake is 7201 E. Green Lake Dr. N. If you are traveling by I-5 northbound to reach Green Lake, you may want to take the N.E. 65th exit and proceed on N.E. 65th to 12th N.E., turn left on 12th N.E. (one way north), proceed to N.E. 70th, turn left on N.E. 70th, proceed west to the lake on N.E. 70th, which becomes N.E. 71rst at 6th N.E. just after the overpass above I-5. (If you are traveling by southbound I-5, just take Exit 171 for N.E. 71rst; and turn right at the first stop sign onto N.E. 71rst.) Continue on N.E. 71rst, which was N.E. 70th, to its end at the lake, turn right on East Green Lake Drive N., follow around the north end of the lake, stay to the left where the road forks at the northwest section of the lake, and travel through the intersections marked by N. 76th and N. 77th street signs. You will see the Green Lake parking lot entrance and exit signs on the left, lake side near the Bathhouse Theater, a short distance from the N. 76th and N. 77th street signs. On the map above, the star party location is on the "peninsula" of land jutting into the lake near the small "island" shown on the map.

Once at Green Lake

The aerial view below shows the general Green Lake peninsula location for the SAS star parties. To reach the exact location, take the walkway at the southeast end of the parking lot, which heads east past the tennis courts to the Green Lake Trail designated on the image below. Turn left onto the Green Lake Trail and proceed a short distance until a large patch of grass, unobstructed by trees, is visible between the trail and the lake. The large patch of grass between the trail and the fishing pier at lake edge will be the site for the star parties. The coordinates for the southern edge of this site near the clump of trees and the fishing pier appear below the aerial image. The optimum location for more effective public involvement and outreach would be nearer to the trail at these slightly different coordinates: N 47 40' 51.5" W 122 20' 29.2"

Paramount Park Star Party

Paramount Park Star Parties are held in Shoreline, near the corner of NE 155th St and 8th Ave NE, Shoreline WA 98155.
