Public Star Party: International Observe the Moon Night

  • Smokey Jack Observatory 100 South Adams Boulevard Westcliffe, CO, 81252 United States (map)

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.
