Information for Visitors:

The  star party is open to the public. Organizations wishing to bring a group to the star party should contact the club president.

Observing begins as soon as it is dark enough to see stars and planets, generally half an hour to an hour after sunset. Visitors arriving at or after dusk should enter the telescope field using only parking lights since bright lights reverse visual night adaptation of those already observing. People bringing telescopes should arrive before sunset to allow time for equipment setup without the need for bright lights. If you need help with your new telescope allow extra time by arriving early -- club members will be busy setting up their own scopes and will need the extra time in order to help newcomers.
