Next event: June 30th star party

Our next scheduled event is our monthly First Quarter Friday star party on June 30th at the College Hill Reservoir, 24th and Lawrence in Eugene. EWEB is closing the big reservoir to prevent people from setting off fireworks there, so we'll be using the smaller reservoir to the north, but there's plenty of room for a star party there. Join us for an evening under the summer sky. We'll have telescopes aimed at Jupiter, Saturn, various star clusters, nebulae, and even a galaxy or two. And of course the Moon, which will be just about exactly at first quarter that night.

Twilight starts late this time of year, so the star party will start about 9:15. If it's cloudy on Friday, we'll try again on Saturday the 1st of July.

New Telescope Lending Page

We have just posted a new page detailing the Eugene Astronomical Society telescope lending program. It provides useful information on the telescopes we lend out and how you can go about picking one up. Check it out here!
