A Twin Falls Star Party!
June 27, 2020 @ 1:01 am
The New Era Astronomy Club will be at Twin Falls Resort State Park to showcase some of the visible stars, planets and other celestial objects. Several telescopes to look through will be onsite and club members will assist anyone in attendance in observation. New Era Astronomy Club will share facts about the night sky, planets, stars and the moon. We will watch some cool 3D films, build your very own star charts, speak about the different types of telescopes and how to use them. As soon as it gets dark we will venture out into the field where a big telescopes will be set up for you to view the night sky through. The moon is scheduled to be half full and the planets will be out in the early morning hours. So, grab the family dress according to weather, bring bug spray, snack, water and hand sanitizer and enjoy a night learning about the night sky.
Bring your own telescope to use or for advice on techniques and sky watching tips. A good pair of binoculars can also increase observation skills. Construct your own star chart so you can map the night sky anywhere!
Event begins gathering around 7:00 p.m at the ballfield. Family friendly. No fee. Open to the public. Social and physical distancing is expected as we work and share the night sky together to stay safe.
