Astronomy Club






   Monthly Meeting: Our next monthly meeting will be in two months. However,  we will continue to host our popular twice monthly summer star parties to take advantage of the spectacular Summer skies above Sun City.

Reminder: All SCPD residents and their guests are most welcome at our club star parties!



       AUGUST STAR PARTIES: Our first Star Party will meet on Saturday, August 8, 2015 @ 8:30 p.m. - a dark night. We will see Saturn in our telescope and views toward the center of our galaxy with a filter that limits the effects of urban lighting.

Our second Star Party for the month will be held on Saturday August 22, 2015 @ 8:00 p.m.; it  will be a moonlit night. We will have telescope viewing of the Moon and Saturn along with star identification. Come learn how our rotating platform (Earth) gives us changing views of the sky and a coordinate system that allows us to steer spacecraft from one planet to another.

Both star parties will be held at our usual location as noted below.
























       All residents and guests are invited to join us on the East green belt off Donny Circle just south of Alliance way. Watch your step - it's dark!
