For this final public star party of the season we will be partnering with the West Custer County Library to celebrate International Observe the Moon Night. There will be a five-day crescent Moon providing outstanding views of the lunar topography. Jupiter has departed for the year and Saturn will be low in the SW sky, but Mars appears as a red jewel in the Milky Way’s diamond bracelet. And beyond our solar system lurk amazing deep-sky objects such as galaxies, nebulas and star clusters that are guaranteed to make you gasp in amazement.
Back-up date is Saturday, October 20.
Any cancellations will be made here on the Event page by 6:00pm the day of the event.
All Star Parties are free and open to the public.
