Star Party at Seal Beach Pier- See Jupiter!


What could be more fun than observing amazing objects through powerful telescopes by the seaside? Bring your friends or family to astronomy night and find out! There will be no moon to interfere with our views of a variety of deep space stellar wonders. All evening we will explore the best double stars, star clusters and nebulae the fall constellations have to offer. Later in the evening we will enjoy our first close-up look of the season at Jupiter with its interesting cloud bands and "Galilean" moons. If you have never seen deep space objects through a big telescope, this is your chance to be amazed.

I am a member of the Seal Beach Astronomy Nights club and their events are co-hosted by Bogart's Coffee House, our favorite purveyor of hot drinks and goodies to keep you warm while you are waiting for your turn at the eyepiece. Bogart's is located at 905 Ocean Avenue just east of Main street (just left of the Seal Beach pier).

If you have a telescope, feel free to bring it to the star party. You don’t have to be an expert and it's rewarding to share anything you know with someone else. The star parties are great for kids of all ages and best of all provide serious entertainment at an unbeatable price. (Free, that is!)

Right now it looks like the recent cloudy weather will clear by Saturday night, but I’ll keep an eye on it and send an email if our plans change. Clear weather following rain can be really good. MEET AT BOGARTS COFFEE- GRAB A HOT DRINK AND WE'LL HEAD ACROSS THE STREET- YOU WILL SEE THE TELESCOPES NEXT TO THE PIER
