Los Angeles Sidewalk Astronomers we will be having a star party at Templin Hwy on July 21st. Take 5 Fwy north past Castaic to Templin Hwy exit, go right about 1/2 mile to big dirt parking lot on right side. We'll be there around 7 pm and it looks like we'll have a nice number of scopes. Everyone is welcome

    I had a great time. It was quite dark, pretty remarkable considering you're only 1/2 a mile from the 5 freeway. There were a lot of nice people from the Sidewalk Astronomers and I enjoyed meeting them.

    I did not make it to the star party as my guest declined to go. I was going to carpool to save on gas money but he did not want to go.

    Here is a link to the Bortle scale of measuring darkness.

    It is a fairly dark area in a Bortle Green zone

    Wow, Donna got the "address" just about right. Google maps gives you an accurate picture of the site.

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.
