CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS: Public Star Party: Saturn's First Appearance


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

Tonight's Star Party has unfortunately been cancelled due to the cloudy weather conditions.

Saturn makes its first appearance of the year low in the SE sky with Jupiter prominent to the south. A three-day waxing crescent Moon gives you the opportunity to see the shadows of the craters and mountain ranges. As dusk gives way to full darkness other fainter objects such as galaxies, nebulas and star clusters will come into view.

All Star Parties are free and open to the public.
