As part of the Bay Area Science Festival, you're invited to a star party. There's a star party happening at over 20 different sites. Colleges, schools, observatories and science centers around the Bay Area will be open, and both professional and amateur astronomers will be on hand to offer telescope viewing and observing tips. Many Night Sky Network Clubs are participating. If the sky is cloudy, many sites will still offer indoor astronomy activities. Some organizations will also have astronomy talks and events that evening, regardless of the weather.

Bring the family, friends, neighbors or just yourself and enjoy a stellar evening!
