We WILL have this event tonight, July 15th.  We expect some clouds but tonight is looking to be better than possible future dates.

Registration (free) for this event is required: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/battis-farm-star-party-tickets-162501535467

This is our first star party since Covid-19. We will set up several telescopes for public viewing of the moon, double stars, nebula, star clusters, and other deep space objects.

This event will take place on one night only; the night will be based on the weather and given the high variability of local weather will not be finalized until 1PM the day of the event.

Notifications will be emailed out using the address that you signed up with.

Due to Covid protocols there are a limited number of spots for each night, so please only sign up for the nights that you can make it.

We expect to be ready to start observing a little before 8:30, though twilight will prevent viewing many objects until after 9PM. Mosquitoes and ticks may be present so please take proper precautions.

Please park in the parking lot and walk up the path along the community garden area to the right to reach where the telescopes will be set up. Use of flashlights is discouraged as it ruins night vision. Flashlights should not be used within 50 feet of the telescope area.

Additional details will be emailed to people that have registered closer to the event date.
