Catalina State Park
October 13, 2018 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Come to Catalina State Park for our next Star Party on Saturday. Imagine what you will see in the skies looking through 8 big telescopes provided by the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association!
Some amazing solar system and deep-sky objects will be in the sky. These include the Moon, Uranus, Neptune, the Andromeda Galaxy (2.5 million light years away), Nebulae, double star systems, star clusters, and other fascinating objects.
Astronomers will be onsite to answer questions and discuss the elements of the night sky as darkness descends. Visitors should meet at the main trailhead parking lot and bring water, snacks, a red light (to protect everyones night vision), sweater or jacket. The cost is Catalina State Parks Entrance Fee of $7 per vehicle (up to four adults).
Note: Five day old Moon / three days before first quarter.
