Harrison Bay Star Party May 11, 2024

May 11 @ 8:00 pm11:00 pm

**Update** Saturday, May 11, 2024 @ 12:07pm – We are GO for tonight! We are looking forward to good weather and we hope to see you there. Remember to bring a jacket as it may be chilly. With any luck, we’ll get a look at the aurora from the recent solar activity.**

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.

  • Set-Up: 7:00-8:00 pm
