We welcome the public to view the planets, the Moon, and deep sky objects through the club members’ telescopes, weather permitting.  Our telescopes don’t work well when it’s cloudy, too windy, snowing or raining.

These monthly public star parties are determined by the moon, and will be held on the evening immediately before, on, or 1st Friday after the First Quarter Moon. The moon is a fundamental object to view in the City, and since it wanders about the Calendar, the date to view it changes, too, but that information will be updated on this end, so stay tuned.

Please note that the star party actually starts about halfway between sunset and dark, which can vary from about 6:30 pm in winter to about 10:00 pm in summer.
