42nd Annual SAC Fall Public Star Party at Thunderbird Conservation Park
Please join us for the 42nd Annual SAC Fall Public Star Party at Thunderbird Conservation Park in Glendale AZ on Saturday, October 5, 2019. The event will be sponsored by Glendale Parks and Recreation Department and hosted by the Saguaro Astronomy Club. Members of the Club will have telescopes large and small set up and available for public viewing from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm (sunset 6:08 pm). They will show a variety of astronomical objects during these hours, including the Moon, Planets (Jupiter and Saturn), plus Stars, Galaxies, and many Deep Sky Wonders. Club volunteers will be on hand to answer questions you may have about telescopes, observing the sky, and astronomy in general. Weather permitting. The event is free. Please join us for a night under the stars!
