Location:
Vasquez Rocks Natural Area
10700 W. Escondido Canyon Road, Agua Dulce, CA 91350
Details:

One of our great public Star Parties. Sunset is around 7:10 so members should plan accordingly. We have the park until 11:30 as usual.

The general public is encouraged to attend! We will likely have solar telescopes set up beforehand to catch a glimpse of our nearest star. Once it starts to get dark we should still be able to see Saturn and Venus above the sunset just above the thin crescent moon.

As it gets darker we will be able to start seeing our closest neighbor galaxy the Andromeda Galaxy as well as other more distant galaxies and nebulae.

We will have several other clubs in attendance as well so it should be a good time for all!

Location Info:

The site of our quarterly public star parties.

Enter the park via the main gate, turn left at the ranger station and continue to the end of the road past the large rocks.

Notes:

This is a County Park so please be mindful of the rules. aka, no alcohol. We know it's cold at night, sorry.
