Upcoming observing date:
Saturday, August 28
Highlights of the night include Jupiter, Saturn, and Summer Nebulae.

Observing Begins: 9:00 pm

Along with observing through telescopes, KAS members will be on hand at the start of each session to conduct a Telescope Clinic. Beginners can learn how to properly setup and use their telescopes.

Each session also features a Constellation Workshop. Learn to read a simple star map (provided free of charge) and find bright stars and constellations on your own. The workshop is followed by a guided tour of the night sky.

Sessions will be canceled if the sky is mostly cloudy or overcast. For cancellation information, pleaseĀ visit the KAS website starting at 6:00 pm on the day of the session.
