Starry Nights is hosted by the Santa Clara County Open Space Authority with help from members of the San Jose Astronomical Association.
You've got a telescope? Come on down and follow along with the objects we view, or find your own and have the pleasure of sharing views of objects you find to others.
No telescope? Come on down and look through our telescopes and learn about the planets and stars and deep sky objects you can see.
Questions? Whats that really bright "star" in east after sunset? (This time it's Jupiter.) We have members of the San Jose Astronomical Association available to answer your questions.
Spectacular deep sky objects of the winter skies are visible at Rancho Canada del Oro Open Space Preserve, which is close by to town.
Objects on display: Deep Sky Objects such as The Orion Nebula, Hyades Cluster, Jupiter, open star clusters M44 (Beehive Cluster), M41, M46, M47 and M1 the Crab Nebula, and lots more.
As you drive up, please dim your lights (if you can) to your parking lights and park in the asphalt lot unless you have arranged with the astronomers ahead of time to help and have your own telescope.
Rain or lots of clouds cancels. (Since you can't see anything). Dress very warm! See you sooooon.
