First Quarter Friday Star Parties

January 1 @ 12:00 am - December 23 @ 12:00 am

The EAS holds monthly star parties at the College Hill Reservoir on the Friday closest to the moon’s first quarter. These star parties are free and open to the public. We’ll provide the telescopes and show you what’s up there in the night sky. Or if you have a telescope of your own, bring it and join in the fun.

The College Hill Reservoir is located on Lawrence Street between 23rd and 25th Avenue.

Star parties start at dusk or 6:00, whichever is later and last as long as there is interest. Everyone is welcome to come, and we usually have many different types of telescopes set up for viewing (some invented by our members!) Star parties are held weather permitting.

If this is your first star party, please read our Star Party Dos and Don’ts.
