Star Party - Frisco Commons Park

Don D, our resident star gazing authority, has agreed to sponsor our group again this month at the Frisco Star Party. There are restrooms at this location. If you have a scope bring it out. If it's cold out be sure to dress warmly as it can get very cold when you are just standing around on cold pavement. Good shoes, a hat, ear coverings, and layers are your best bet. You can always take off what's not needed. (BTW this is only a stargazing party - no food or drink required. :) More details, including directions to the Park, are available at:
Frisco Star Party The site gives directions from Preston, from the Tollway you turn right on Main (FM 720) and go for about 1.5 miles through Old Frisco, past the old watertower to Meadow Lane on the left. A median prevents you from turning left directly onto Meadow, so you can take the next left into the parking lot of Liberty Baptist Church and go back to Meadow. On this map of the park we will be in the area at the bottom: .

      I guess they have not yet invented a see-thru-the-clouds attachment. Here's hoping for better weather next month.

    This reminds me of the Star Party at the McDonald Observatory near Fort Davis. What stars/planet/asteroids! are we going to be seeing?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
