2024 First Quarter Friday Star Parties

March 3 @ 7:00 pm - April 18 @ 9:00 pm

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 will 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 star party dates are March 15, May 17, June 14. Beyond that we’re unsure if the College Hill Reservoir will be available, so check back here for updates on time and place.

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!) Remember to dress warmly!

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