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 8PM to 11PM, featuring star clusters such as the "Flight of Ducks", pretty double star Albireo, the Ring Nebula, the Great Galaxy in Andromeda. The moon won't be seen as it doesn't rise til 1AM. Come with a telescope, or just bring your eyes!

==Beginners Classes==
Kid friendly beginning observational astronomy. Topics: September solar system events, constellations Delphinus, Equuleus, Capricornus, Aquarius, 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.

      Just show up, no RSVP needed. But it's good to indicated here on Meetup that you're going, helps drum up interest. Because as with most things in life, the more the merrier!
