Star Party and Telescope Clinic Coming Up Soon

Members of the Ventura County Astronomical Society will answer questions about telescopes and teach guests how to set up telecscopes.

The summer sky contains dozens of spectacular star clusters that are visible and can be better appreciated with the help of a telescope. 

The Ventura County Astronomical Society (VCAS) will lend its expertise and hold a star party and telescope clinic for the public's enjoyment. 

The event will take place on Friday, July 20, at 8 p.m. (weather permitting) at the Charles Temple Observatory of , 7075 Campus Road.

VCAS members will answer questions about telescopes, teach guests how to set one up and get everyone started in enjoying the night sky. Guests may view the sky through the observatory and members' telescopes. The public is encouraged to bring their telescopes and questions.

A $2 donation is appreciated for rent of the facility. A red tape for flashlights (for dark adaptation) and star maps will be provided. The party is appropriate for everyone 8 years old and older.
