Star Party at Hillman State Park

As the sky begins to darken and the stars come out, join the Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh (AAAP) to learn  about and see some of the amazing celestial objects in the night sky.   Following a short presentation (45 minutes), we will head out and look at some of the items in the night sky with a variety of telescopes (basic and advanced models), and you may stay as long as you like for the stargazing part.  We will be ending at 12:00am.   Please note this program is weather permitting, so if the sky is overcast or rain is forecasted, the program will be rescheduled.  If the sky is clear or a few scattered clouds, the Star Party is a go. You may bring your telescope to use or look through one set up by the AAAP.  Please remember to bring extra layers of clothing for program since it can get quite cool at night. To fully enjoy the night sky and faint objects in telescopes, the use of use cell phones, white lights or flashlights, glow sticks, and flash photography are not permitted.
