Skaneateles Star Party

On Saturday July 13th the Syracuse Astronomical Society was hosted by the town of Skaneateles for a star party. We had approximately 50 members of the public come and observe though the telescopes of our members and watch the EAA presentation’s given by Tony and Jeff. On the lawn we had Joe F doing AP, and Mike Z., John R., Adam D., and Alex J. showing various objects. We observed a conjunction of the star Spica and the Moon which later on after we left would occult, as well as a pass of the International Space Station.
