happy hour (astronomy night is cancelled)

  • Apr 25, 2014 · 6:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

the Phillies Science Festival has cancelled the Astronomy stargazing for this evening. I'll be at the Taproom around 6:15 if anyone is still up for a happy hour.

*****************************************************

Grab a blanket and take a tour of the cosmos with local astronomers. If you have your own telescope or binoculars, bring them along! Don’t forget to bring your own blankets, beach chairs, beverages and/or snacks! Laurel Hill will also offer a raffle, and an array of merchandise for sale. Relaxing and stargazing from Philly’s most ethereal site = a perfect way to end the week!


As part of the Philadelphia Science Festival (www.philasciencefestival.org), over 20 venues in and around the city will play host to astronomy night star parties with amateur astronomers coming out en mass with their telescopes to show locals the wonders of the night sky. Gates open at 7:30 pm. Visitors can enter through the gatehouse on Ridge Avenue. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the gatehouse. Admission to the event is FREE and open to the public. For additional information, phone (215)[masked], or visit http://www.thelaurelhillcemetery.org/index.php?m=4&id=106

The East Falls Taproom is close by, so we can head there for some post-astronomy potables. :^)

    I hope it doesn't get rained out! I went last year and it was awesome.

      Next time please be courteous, and update your RSVP. When you don't, that's a no-show.

    I have a work event this evening—I could have made it for star gazing, but not much earlier...since we are going to have rain I think I have to change my rsvp...sorry for the last minute cancellation!

    April 25, 2014

    • michael b

      No problem. By the way the stargazing isn't cancelled, we're just going to wait and see what happens.

      April 25, 2014

    I have a running event, will will try to join later if it is not raining too much..east falls taproom is a good place nearby if the weather does not cooperate!

    I want to join this but weather forecast says it will be cloudy and may rain. One can not watch sky if cloudy. I will join if sky stays clear even if it is partly clear

    April 24, 2014

    • michael b

      Hmm. That's possible. Thanks for the update.

      April 24, 2014
