Star Party at Catalina State Park

Catalina State Park

October 14, 2017   6:30pm - 9:30pm

Come to Catalina State Park for our next Star Party on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Imagine what you will see in the skies looking through 10 big telescopes provided by the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association! 

Some amazing solar system and deep-sky objects will be in the sky. These include Saturn (early evening), 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 everyone’s night vision), sweater or jacket. The cost is Catalina State Park’s Entrance Fee of $7 per vehicle (up to four adults).
