Star Party at Oracle State Park
Oracle State Park
September 01, 2018 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association has graciously provided 10 of their high quality telescopes for this Star Party event! See planets and celestial objects with more clarity than you have ever experienced! Amazing solar system and deep-sky objects, Uranus, Neptune, the Andromeda Galaxy (2.5 million light years away), Nebulae, double star systems, star clusters, and other fascinating objects! Astronomers will be on site to answer questions and discuss the elements of the night sky as darkness descends. Visitors should meet at the main trailhead parking lot. Please bring water, snacks, a red light (to protect everyones night vision), sweater or jacket.
Note: No moon viewing. One day before last quarter.
