4:30 PM - 8:30 PM
The folks out at the Whitewater Preserve have asked us to do an outreach for their star walk event.
Moon phase: 1 day before First Quarter
Sunset: 4:57 pm
Star Party Etiquette:
As with all star parties, please observe standard star party etiquette. Some tips: try to arrive and setup before dark; use no white light – use red filtered flashlights wherever possible – minimize white light from auto door and dome lights; if you arrive late or plan to leave early, take care to approach and park so your headlights or backup lights do not shine on other participants; if you leave early or must use white light, first give a warning so observers or astrophotographers can compensate; please ask before handling other participant’s telescope equipment. Most importantly, be prepared to relax and enjoy good company under the night sky.
