Star Party with AAAA at the Landis Arboretum | Kids Out and About Albany

Star Party with AAAA at the Landis Arboretum

Come to Landis Arboretum to view the stars and planets with members of the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers. A variety of telescopes will be set up for viewing the heavens. Club members will provide views of nebulae, star clusters, galaxies, double stars, planets (when visible), and other interesting celestial objects. Please Note: Star Parties are canceled if the skies are mostly cloudy. Please call the Frenches at 518-374- 8460 if you are in doubt. We decide 90 minutes before the scheduled start. Here are important tips and information for participants at our Star Parties: • Guests of all ages are welcome. Club activities are free and open to the public. • In cold weather it is very important to dress warmly – and you will NOT be warm if you do not wear a hat! Wear boots if it’s snowy. You will be outdoors and it is very easy to get chilled when you are inactive (it feels 20 to 30 degrees colder!). Even cool weather requires extra clothing. • You are welcome to bring a telescope if you have one. We will be happy to answer questions about using or buying a telescope. [There are many poor-quality telescopes on the market and much of the advertising is misleading, so learn the basics about telescopes before buying!]
