Public Star Party - Cary Library

The Northwest Suburban Astronomers return with their high-tech telescopes to offer you a glimpse of deep sky objects. Since the moon will not be very bright on this date, many stars and planets should be visible. Telescopes will be set up in the back parking lot; you will need to park in the front lot and walk to the back of the building to join in the fun. Weather permitting, everyone will get a chance to use one of the powerful telescopes. In addition, one of the club members will be in our meeting room with a presentation for those interested in learning more about objects visible in the night sky.
