  • Star Party 2/18/2017- Oak Canyon Astronomy Group

    560876_367736579962901_619588203_n

    Update: 2/17/17 - We regret to say that due to the expected storm this Star Party has been canceled. Please stay tuned for information on Oak Canyon's March star party. 

    The Oak Canyon Astronomy Group has returned!   Sponsored in part by SkyWatcher and Software Bisque (many thanks for donating equipment!) and FOCUS Astronomy Outreach and run by the generous volunteers that have kept the club going.   Join OCAG for the Joe Napolitano Memorial Astronomy Outreach star parties each month.  Due to inclement weather the January star party was canceled. The first star party will be February 18th, 2017.   Here are the details:

    • The subject of conversation on the 18th will be Observing the Night Sky with focus on general observing tips, orienting yourself with the sky and finding key objects.
    • Set up is from at 4pm-5pm.    Please be respectful of this setup time.  It has been allocated to get set up done before dusk when the need for flashlights is minimal.
    • Starting at 5pm outreach telescopes will be available to the public.
    • Event ends at 9pm.  Because the star party is held on Oak Canyon Park property, we ask that you be prepared to depart in a timely manner.

    Oak Canyon star parties are held at 5600 Hollytree Dr. in Oak Park, CA 91377 at the Oak Canyon Community Park.   Outreach telescopes will be set up on the upper parking lot on the northwest end.     Oak Canyon Community Park is in a suburban setting and while the skies are dark, these monthly star parties are designed to offer an opportunity to the community to get up close and personal with the night sky.    Children with supervision are absolutely welcome and seeing the moon, planets or a star cluster through a telescope for the first time can be an awe-inspiring experience.   Outreach volunteers have kindly lent their equipment and are happy to answer any questions you might have.  Don't forget, running lights only as you approach the lot if you're arriving after dark.

    We'll see you out there!
