Weather permitting, the Gloucester Area Astronomy Club and HPSP present the first summer star party of 2016 at the Halibut Point Visitor Center, from dusk to 10:00 pm on Saturday night, June 4. There is no cost.
The club will have telescopes set up for the public to look through; we’ll see Jupiter and its moons, Mars, Saturn, summer star clusters and galaxies, colorful binary stars, and more. Come on out and say hello to Summer with a guided tour through your wonderful dark Cape Ann skies.
Please park in the paved lot off of Gott Ave, and walk the short distance up the hill to the Visitor Center. If it’s overcast we’ll try again on July 9.
The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club meets on the first Friday of the month from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm at the Lanesville Community Center, 8 Vulcan Street in Lanesville. All are welcome; parking is free and there are no dues or fees. No special knowledge or equipment is needed to have a great time.
