Despite the threat of clouds the evening ended up with clear skys for the star party. After a presentation by Brewster LaMacchia on the moon, Jupiter, and Mars, the 100 attendees headed outside to see those objects through telescopes provided by Dave Aucoin, John Hobbs, Kevin Ackert, and Dick Luecke, and Bill Drown assisting.
A little into the observing Saturn rose out of the haze and was also featured. Despite the lights from the adjacent baseball fields, M81 and M13 were also viewed. The students were enthusiastic and it was a great crowd for the event. A couple of satellites also went by.
