Silver Star Party Outreach

Looking for AAC  members  with telescopes to show off the night sky at Silver Springs State Park in Ocala.  Members need to be set up before 7:30 pm for visitors starting at 8pm.  Members without telescopes can help too!  Please sign up if interested.

Sunset is at 7:45 pm.  Moon rise is at 8:57 am and will be at 17.3% illumination, so the moon will be at the top of our observing list.  Members should have a couple of items they would like to show off along with some information about them.

Lisa Eager (lisa.eager@alachuaastronomyclub.org) will be the contact for this event.
