Star Party - Sunday, July 28
Sunday, July 28, 2019
Join the Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh (AAAP) for a Star Party on Sunday, July 28 at Murrysville Community Park, Field 6 (uppermost field)! Guest should arrive at 8:30 p.m. for a short presentation on star gazing and the universe. After the presentation guest will be able to view the sky through the privately owned telescopes of volunteer members from the AAAP. Jupiter and Saturn will be visible that night, as well as distant galaxies and planetary nebula thousands and millions of light years away. Also for a special treat that night we have the Aquarids Meteor shower and a fly over by the ISS at 10:31 p.m. This is a FREE event but registration is required.
Bring a lawn chair or a blanket, bug spray, and your curiosity. Cloudy skies and rain will cause the event to be cancelled. Members of the public are encouraged to bring their own telescopes and ask questions.
