A Night for Beginning Astronomers

  • 30 Mar 2024
  • 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Muir Woods Community Clubhouse on Mt. Tam, 40 Ridge Avenue, Mill Valley, CA 94941

The SFAA is hosting a night dedicated to our members beginning in visual astronomy. Beginners will bring their optical instruments and experienced members will be present to provide assistance. Cosmic delights for the evening include: Jupiter with its Great Red Spot visible and its moon Io casting a shadow, an excellent opportunity to view Comet Pons-Brooks, the great Orion Nebula, and the home of Star Trek’s Vulcans.

Join us for a BYOF picnic (cookies provided!) prior to the event at 6:00 PM. Sunset will be at 7:30 PM, therefore we suggest arriving no later than 7 PM to allow for setup.
