2018 Public Viewing Schedule

The 2018 Observing Schedule

* SAS Public Star Parties are viewing sessions for the general public.  They are held on the Fridays (with Saturday as the weather alternate, but only if we are clouded out on the preceding Friday) close to the New Moon from April through October.  These sessions are free and open to the general public.

Other Observing Times

The SAS hosts several sessions for organizations throughout the year. If you wish to schedule an event, please contact us with an estimate of observing dates (it is often necessary (and best) to schedule both an official observing date and a “rain date” in case of poor observing weather).
