Take a Peek at the Galaxy at a Star Party!
September 24, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Enjoy a waning night of summer with a Star Party! Weather permitting, we will gaze into the night sky with expert astronomer Adam McCulloch from the Geneva Lake Astrophysics and STEAM (GLAS) team.
EAA932 members, families and friends are welcome to join with other Galt folk for a Saturday evening of star gazing. Meet at the FBO. Starting at 7pm, GLAS will give a brief introduction followed by 3-4 activities that demonstrate different astronomical objects. Telescopes will be available for viewing 1 hour after sunset. We will have the opportunity to view: Jupiter, Saturn, Andromeda Galaxy, Ring Nebula, Hercules Cluster, Pleiades, and Dumbell Nebula, as well as Constellation tours. If you have your own telescope, you are welcome to bring it to the event, however GLAS volunteers may not have time to assist in locating celestial bodies.
A tax deductible donation of $20 to the Ed Moricoli Memorial Flight Training Scholarship fund is encouraged to help support events like this with the goal of funding the annual Ed Moricoli Flight Training Scholarship. Please RSVP to help us to ensure that the GLAS team has enough telescopes and volunteers to allow everyone the opportunity to see and ponder what is “out there”.
Syd Krause, the 2022 Ray Scholar recipient, is a participant of the GLAS program. Check out the GLAS website to learn more about their programs.
