Test Star Party – Foothills Parkway #14
January 3 @ 6:00 pm - 11:30 pmFree
This is a Star Party at the Foothills Parkway #14. This is a fairly primitive location off of the Foothills Parkway. Typically you can get great views of the South and are good for Milkyway and objects in the South. There is a challenge getting Polaris due to tree growth to the North.
What to bring:
- Red head lamp to preserve night vision. Please be courteous to others as lights should be kept at a minimum so that astrophotographers can take pictures.
- Warm clothing as it could get cold, hand warmers, hat, etc.
- Mosquito repellent if it’s warm. Make sure you are applying away from equipment.
- Telescope, binoculars, etc or ask folks if you can see through their gear.
- Please turn off artificial lights (vehicles, flashlights, etc) as it will interfere with photographs being taken.
- Under 18 will need an accompanying adult.
