Star Party at Oracle State Park
Oracle State Park
September 01, 2018 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Come to Oracle State Park for our next Star Party on Saturday. 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 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 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 and bring water, snacks, a red light (to protect everyones night vision), sweater or jacket.
Note: No moon viewing. One day before last quarter.
