Public Star Party - Saturday, September 23, 2023
Description: Time: Sunset - 10pm

Please join the Salt Lake Astronomical Society volunteers as they set up their telescopes and invite the public to enjoy the view.

If you've never been to a star party, here are some tips:

* Star parties are informal events (it is a party!). Please feel free to approach any telescope operator and ask what they are observing. Join in on the fun and introduce yourself to others.

*Stow your white light flashlight in the car. There's plenty of ambient light after your eyes get dark adapted.

* Taking a picture of what you see in a telescope with your cell phone is just about impossible. Also, the device may damage expensive eyepieces if it touches or scrapes the surface. Along with the bright lights phones produce, it is a good idea to keep the mobile devices stowed away.

* Families are encouraged to attend. Children must be accompanied by a parent/adult.

*All Events are Weather Permitting
