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!)
The first Public Star Party of 2019 will be March 16th at 7pm. Check the Weather Hotline before coming out: 484-367-5278. And check back soon for a complete listing of our upcoming 2019 star-parties.
