Classes and Star Parties for Our New Observers This Summer


This year, we will be hosting a series of star parties and classes for new observers. Whether you have just joined the club or have been a member for years, if you are ready to start your adventure observing, we are here to help! We will have two series this summer:

New Observer Star Parties - Do you have a telescope and are wanting to take it out to a star party, but need a little extra guidance? In our New Observer Star Parties, we will have mentors to help answer all your questions as your guide your telescope around the night sky. We will also have a "Kids with Scopes" section in which kids may also learn to observe on Orion Starblasts provided by RCA. Our first new observer star party will be on Saturday, July 6th, at Stub Stewart. If you are interested, please email Yara Green at to reserve your spot. Space is limited. We are also looking for mentors for this event, so please let me know if you would like to help out by emailing

New Observer Classes - In these classes, we will be providing telescopes to help you learn how to use a telescope and navigate the night sky. We will also go over star party etiquette as well as how to stay warm into the early morning hours. Dates for these are coming soon. If you would like to be on our email list for the new observer classes, please email Yara Green at
