Harrison Bay Star Party April 13, 2024

April 13 @ 7:30 pm10:30 pm

UPDATE 4/13/24: Folks, it will be a superb evening to stargaze (and Moongaze) at Harrison Bay tonight! Hope you can come out and join us!

Please join us at the Rec Hall parking area for an evening of astronomical observations with visual telescopes, Electronically-Assisted scopes and monitors, and just looking up with our eyes!

Family-friendly, accessible, and guaranteed awesome!

Note: BAS events are free to all.

Basic information for the April 13, 2024 Harrison Bay Star Party:

  • Sunset: 8:12 pm
  • Moon: 23% waxing crescent. Be cool to look at!
  • BAS Set-Up: 6:30-7:30 pm
  • Guest Arrival: 7:30 pm
  • Deep Sky: Heading into Galaxy Season. Plenty of open clusters and other spring goodies!
  • Planets: Jupiter will be the best planet for now, but we will be losing it all too soon. Maybe Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks?
  • The nature of these events means they are weather-dependent. Updates posted between 1:00 and 2:00 pm.
