Harrison Bay Star Party July 13, 2024

July 13 @ 8:30 pm11:00 pm

Update 7/13/24 10:30 am: Folks, it looks like we will be good to go for stargazing tonight at Harrison Bay! It will be hot though, so be prepared for that and make sure you bring water to stay hydrated. There will be a beautiful Moon for visual observing and a nice selection of deep sky objects for visual and EAA. Remember, we’ll have the gear – all you need is your eyeballs, curiosity, and sense of wonder!
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! You do not need to bring a telescope – the BAS has all the gear!
Note: BAS events are free to all.
