Astronomy in the Park

Saturday, August 3, 2019

Join us at the Rustic Oaks Park on the first Saturday of every month from April to November for a totally free and fun evening of amateur astronomy rain or shine. Besides current celestial events, we typically show: • A 100’ model of the solar system (Sun to Mars – Jupiter and Saturn in the distance) around 7:00pm for kids of all ages in the summer (before night fall) • Major constellations and asterisms and their legends • Telescope observation of the stars and visible planets • Binocular astronomy demonstrations • Computer displays of free astronomy software, DVDs and presentations in the shelter when the weather is bad. • Q&A with amateur astronomers and scientists • Flyers describing the moon and its phases, the scale of the solar system, the major constellations and asterisms visible now, a list of relevant URLs, free software from the net, etc. Contact: Daniel M. Roy: danroy@stpp.com, (210) 792 3255 and (210) 810 7895.
