Star Party

Star Party Saturday 5:30 PM November 10th. Join us for an inspiring evening under the stars!

If you came to join us on Aug. 4th and enjoyed yourself, you won't want to miss this event! There will be more telescopes, more interpreters, and a PA System so that everyone can hear what interpreters have to share. The sun sets right before 6 pm, and the tiny sliver of a moon will set just after 8- allowing optimal viewing of galaxies and nebulae far far away!

Bring your friends and family for an interpretive tour of the night sky, from identifying celestial objects with the naked eye, taking a closer look with binoculars, and getting up close and personal with Fall and Winter sky constellations. Enjoy a Q&A with our volunteer astronomers and their incredible telescopes! See an incredible view of The Great Andromeda Galaxy- a mirror of our own Milky Way, and the Great Orion Nebula, just to name a few.

Joe Ward- one of our hosts, and avid astro-photographer and Astronomer captured this beautiful image of the Andromeda Galaxy pictured in this event.

This event is free for SOLC Members, and a $10 donation per vehicle for Non- Members. This will be a dark night sky experience, so please, no flashlights! We will have non-intrusive red lighting to mark paths and exploration stations. Light refreshments will be served. Feel free to bring blankets, coolers, and a picnic dinner to watch the stars!
