Details

Come view the heavens through a telescope at the SJAA's In Town Star Party. Bring a scope to share the views, and if you do, feel free to come early to set up. Remember, this event is free, everyone is invited, no reservations required. Just show up!

Star Party Etiquette:
Please don’t use white lights; red flashlights are okay.
Watch your step; don’t trip over tripod legs or cables.
Please don’t touch telescope equipment without explicit permission.
Drive slowly in the parking lot; especially watch out for kids.
Keep parking spots closest to the tennis courts open for people setting up telescopes.
Please don’t litter and don’t smoke or bring alcohol to this event.
