First Sandy Hook Star Party: 26 July 2014

Tot Park

Weather permitting, the Sandy Hook Star Party starts at 7:30 PM when we set up solar scopes for viewing flares and sun spots.  The night scopes will be set up by 9 PM (sunset is at 8:51) at Tot Park (5916 Skookumchuk Rd) which is at the corner of Deerhorn Dr and Skookumchuk Rd (see map below). My house is the other side of the empty lot from the park in case Centre members or residents need a washroom or refreshment. There is a new moon that night, so we’ll have dark sky for the event.

This is the first time we’ve held this event, and if it is successful we may make it a yearly one. If you’re bringing flashlights, please bring red lenses in order to preserve our night vision.
