On Saturday evening April 14, the Local Group Astronomy Club of Santa Clarita is hosting a free public Star Party at Vasquez Rocks Natural Area.

The event will include a large number of amateur astronomers with many telescopes set up for your viewing pleasure. Come look at planets, nebulae and galaxies with your own eyes. Enough looking at pictures. Come see the wonders of the night sky in person.

Check out the full event details at http://lgscv.org/events/376.

Event Name:
Vasquez Rocks Public Star Party
Begins:
April 14 from 7:00 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.PM

Please arrive before sundown (7:23 p.m.) and park in the lot next to the big rocks with your headlights facing away from the scopes. All park rules apply.

The astronomy club will be holding a free telescope workshop beginning at 5:30 p.m. prior to the event. Bring out that old scope and we’ll help you get it working.

Enter the park via the main gate, turn left at the ranger station and continue to the end of the road past the large rocks.
