SJAA Star Party and Astronomy Class

There are two events: Beginners class, star party. Read on.

==Public Star Party==
The SJAA will be holding a public star party from about 9:15PM to midnight, featuring the splendid planet Saturn, star clusters such as the "Flight of Ducks", pretty double star Albireo, and the Ring Nebula. The moon is absent, probably on summer vacation, we're not sure. Come with a telescope, or just bring your eyes!

==Beginners Classes==
Kid friendly beginning observational astronomy, starting at 8:15PM. Topics: August solar system events, constellations Hercules, Ophiuchus, Serpens Cauda, Sagittarius, and a solar system object in more depth. Mixture of mythology and science, then outdoors to see constellations and view through telescopes.  Free - no reservation needed, just show up!

Both events are at San Jose's Houge Park.
