Star Parties

DVAA public star parties are held on the Model Airplane Field at Valley Forge National Historical Park.

2018 confirmed Public Star Party dates are (all Saturday evenings):  Mar. 24 (7:00), Apr. 21 (8:00), May 19 (8:00), June 16 (8:30), Jul 21 (8:30), Aug. 18 (8:00), Sep. 15 (7:00), Oct. 13 (6:30), Nov. 17 (5:00).


Come and observe what few on Earth have ever seen: planets, moons, constellations, nebulae, galaxies, star clusters, comets, meteors, satellites, double stars and more as seen through a variety of telescopes and binoculars.

Star Parties are a public service of the DVAA and are FREE!!   Adults and children alike are welcome.

Our members setup and man a bunch of telescopes and binoculars for the public to use but you should also feel free to bring out your own equipment as well.  Also, if you're a noob or you haven't used your scope in a while we'll be happy to help you with setup and calibration.  In either case, be prepared to learn a whole lot about the sky (The DVAA loves to talk astronomy!)
