Public Star Party: Jupiter's Ascent & Saturn's First Appearance

Join us in celebrating the first appearance of Saturn in our night sky of 2019 while Jupiter ascends high in the sky. As the former King of the Gods in Roman mythology, Saturn was overtaken as king by his son Jupiter, with the help of Jupiter’s siblings Neptune, Pluto, Ceres, Juno and Vesta. Now you can see the ancient battle of the Gods in the night sky right above us!

In the case of a cancellation due to the weather, the back up date is Saturday, July 6 at 9:30 p.m.

Any cancellations will be made here on the Event page by 8:00 p.m. the day of the event.

All Star Parties are free and open to the public. If you would like to participate by bringing your own telescope, please contact the Event Manager, Ed Stewart,, with a brief description of your astronomical experience and telescope.
