AoU Family Event: SLAS Star Party

Please join us for a free star party hosted by the Salt Lake Astronomical Society (SLAS)! This is one of SLAS’s public star parties where members of SLAS open up their observatory in Stansbury Park and share views through their personal telescopes.
www.slas.us

I understand it can get cold near the observatory due to the vicinity of Stansbury Lake, so bring a jacket. Please note this event is WEATHER PERMITTING. I’ll update this event if SLAS decides to cancel the event.

We shouldn’t need to bring our own flashlights, but if you do, please outfit it with a red filter.

If you have your own telescope you are welcome to bring it. They ask that everyone has their equipment setup before sunset.

When:
Saturday April 20th, dusk – 11:00PM

Where:
Stansbury Park Observatory Complex (SPOC)

    Talked with the star party organizer and he was very optimistic about the clarity of the sky over Stansbury Park tonight.

    I know I said that this event starts at 7:30. But sundown tonight is more like 8:15. So, my kids and I will be there around 7:30 hanging out in the park, but the rest of you should feel free to come and go as you see fit. If you have trouble finding us, call or text me:[masked]

      Yes! We have several people out here already. All the big telescopes are running and skies are clear!

    Waw! That sounds really interesting! Even for me to set aside my irrational fear of driving after dark.
    ¿Could I join?

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.
