The Sedona Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau, the City of Sedona Parks and Recreation Department, the Astronomers of Verde Valley, and Keep Sedona Beautiful together hosted an evening Star Party at the Posse Ground Park on Saturday, August 4. Over 400 people attended the event.
As the City noted in its invitation to the event, “As the last of the Winter constellations dip into the western horizon, the rich stream of stars in the Summer Milky Way are rising high in the sky. The constellations of Cygnus the Swan, Vulpecula the Fox, Aquila the Eagle, Sagittarius the Archer and Scorpius the Scorpion are just a few of the star rich areas that hide open clusters, planetary nebula, globular clusters and emission nebula only visible in the many telescopes that will be set up for everyone to view thru. The planets Jupiter, Saturn and Mars will also be visible. Laser guided constellation tours will also be available during the event.”
KSB hopes you will join us at future Star Parties.
