Due to the ongoing pandemic, the CA State Parks has limited the total number of people we are allowed to have at our star parties. This limit, 25 people, will be the biggest change. This change will also mean that our members are limited on bringing guests. Individual Memberships can only bring themselves. Family Memberships and Supporting Members can bring themselves and one guest (two people, TOTAL). That guest must arrive in the same car as the member. If two members arrive together, both members' Tam parking permits must be displayed on the dashboard. There is also no transferring of parking permits. The named member is the only one that is allowed to use it.
Admission to this event is first come first served, no RSVP is required at this time. Entry policy may change in the future, and if so, will be shared on this page.
Requirement: Please read and comply with these Special Instructions.
Come join the San Francisco Amateur Astronomers for free public stargazing of the Moon, planets, globular clusters and more!
SFAA members with telescopes are encouraged to attend and share their views of the stars with the general public.
Dress warmly. Due to the pandemic, social-distancing and masks are encouraged, but not required.
Rain, heavy fog and overcast skies cancel. Check the SFAA website for a cancellation notice before leaving for the star party.
Due to popularity, Member's-Only star parties now require prior signup. All members should receive an email when the RSVP window is open prior to each star party.
