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 operate 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 newbie 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!)
Public Star Parties will resume in March. Check back soon for a complete listing of our upcoming star-parties.
