Annual NSA Star Party at Cary Library

The Northwest Suburban Astronomers return with their high-tech telescopes to offer you views of the planets Neptune and Uranus, as well as numerous deep sky objects such as the Andromeda Galaxy, the Pleiades, and the globular cluster M15. Telescopes will be set up the front parking lot. If the lot is full, please park at Three Oaks School.

Please note, in case of inclement weather, the rain date for this event is 26 October, when the moon will be just short of first quarter, and at its best for dramatic views of lunar mountain ranges, maria, and craters.
