We will be having our third annual Cosmos Research Center Star Party at Anza, California, on August 14, 2010. We will have a BBQ, a Science Symposium for kids to give power point presentations about the stars, and then will be able to see the sky using the mighty Kuhn 22″ telescope at the Orange County Astronomers club Observatory.
The moon will be up for the early evening, giving us a chance to see it close up for a while. Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Saturn will be clustered near each other just at sunset. When the moon sets, we’ll have a dark sky and a chance to see the Milky Way, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune. With a little luck, we’ll be able to see all the planets in one night!
