SJAA Astronomy Class

There are two events: Beginners class, star party. Read on.

==Public Star Party==
The San Jose Astronomical Assn will be holding a public star party from about 9 to 11PM, featuring Jupiter and its moons and other night sky wonders. Come with a telescope, or just bring your eyes!

==Beginners Classes==

Starting at 8pm, SJAA member Rob Jaworski will host the monthly Beginners Astronomy class. The session will be targeted for kids and extreme newbies to astronomy and will cover basic terminology and concepts.  Expect the session to last an hour or perhaps 90 minutes, depending on questions and audience participation. Again, note that this session will be entirely suitable for kids as young as 7 years old; kids younger than that will probably have a more difficult time. Bring the family!

Both events are at San Jose's Houge Park, both are free and open to the public; just show up!
