Details:

We're back again for another of our fabulous quarterly star parties. These are always a blast and this one looks to be no different. As usual all the local area astronomy clubs are invited to join us so we usually have a goodly number of telescopes.

The weather is shaping up to be good with a light wind and clear skies. The moon sets right at twilight so it should be as dark as it ever gets at Vasquez.

Not much in the way of planetary targets however both Neptune and Uranus will be up so those with larger scopes should be able to get good views. M31 and M33 should be great galactic targets fairly high in the North East. Lots of clusters and nebulae should be reachable depending upon seeing.

Sundown is at 6:07 so please plan to get there before dark to prevent blinding folks with your headlights. Cars should be parked pointing away from the viewing area.

See you there!

Location Info:
