Local Project Astro Star Party - May 23, 2009

Posted on behalf of David Dorais - Project Astro volunteer - http://www.astrosociety.org/education/astro/project_astro.html

The Room 9 Community School is planning to hold a Star Party on May 23rd, Saturday, weather permitting, from 5pm to 11pm (roughly). We will have two Dobs-8'',10", a C-8 and 10x50 binos. Any fellow Project Astro'gators' and any local amateurs are invited to add their 'scopes to the party. Especially any refractors-in honor of Galileo/400 yrs/IYA2009 will be very welcome.

The location is the north SAS monthly site at Paramount School Park in Shoreline, WA at 155th NE and 8th NE. Map of site is available on SAS website-- www.seattleastro.org .

If overcast or forecast is very unfriendly on Friday; we are planning an alternate date of May 30th which coincides with the regular SAS monthly SP event.

Parking lot is relatively small- parents and amateurs are encouraged to carpool and park their front headlights to the west to help with dark eye adaptation.
