The Sirius Lookers Astro Club, Sedona Public Library, and Keep Sedona Beautiful Dark-Sky Committee are sponsoring the National Astronomy Day this year on Sunday, April 22. An event that is now global, starting over 40 years ago, by Doug Berger of California for promoting science and dark skies awareness in the public’s eye.
The star party will be in the Safeway parking Lot, in West Sedona. Starting with (SAFE) solar viewing of our closest star the “Sun”, from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. See explosions coming off the Sun with a H-alpha filtered scope and sunspots!
The night time stargazing is from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. Highlights are the crescent Moon, the Seven Sisters Star cluster, the planet Venus, and more! Binoculars and giant scopes will be on hand for enhanced viewing. The Sirius Lookers and KSB will be there to assist guests of this special event. Bring the whole family out under the stars for this fun activity.
All are welcome to this free public event.
