Free and Open to the Public
TAAS and the OSVC again collaborate to present a full star party at Open Space Visitor Center. Since this is the day before daylight saving time starts, we will have that extra hour of darkness for observing on their patio facing the mountain, while inside the astronomy continues with the making of star charts, video in the media room, an astronomy talk in the Kiva Room and a telescope demonstration in the front (if possible, we will have solar observing preceding the star party).
Make plans to arrive between 5:00 and 6:00pm to park, watch the astronomers set up their gear and tour the beautiful facility of the OSVC. Bring a jacket, use only red lights on the observing field, but mostly, bring your curiosity and enthusiasm and join the fun!
Thank you in advance to all the volunteers, both OSVC and TAAS, for making this such a successful event over the years.
