WHAT: This free event is an opportunity for amateur astronomers, students, and the general public to observe the wonders of the sky such as the planets, galaxies, planetary nebulae, and star clusters. Did you get a telescope recently and don't know how to use it? Bring it along and members of the AAAP will help! Looking to buy a telescope, accessories, star charts, and books? An AAAP Star Party is the place to start. We'll have free handouts, guides, and booklets to point visitors in the right direction.
