Weather permitting, Halibut Point State Park and the Gloucester Area Astronomy Club will be hosting a star party Saturday evening, June 17, next to the HPSP Visitor Center, where GAAC will have telescopes set up from dusk to 10:00 pm for public viewing.Everyone is invited! Come look through the club’s telescopes at Jupiter and its moons, and an array of distant deep-sky objects like galaxies, nebulae and star clusters. Of course there is no cost.
If skies are cloudy we'll try again at the next scheduled event on July 22.
Please park in the paved lot off of Gott Ave and walk the short distance up the hill to the Visitor Center, and please keep white lights to a minimum, so everyone’s eyes get a chance to adapt to the dark.
The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club meets at 8:00 pm on the second Friday of the month at the Lanesville Community Center, 8 Vulcan St. in Lanesville. There is no cost, and the public is welcome.
