Our star party at Coleman Observatory this evening is open to everyone who'd like to come watch the skies for some early Perseid meteors. While the peak is rumored to be tomorrow evening near 1:00am to 3:00am, there should be several meteors per hour tonight. Feel free to bring 35mm manual cameras with tripod and cable release to try capturing your own meteor trails. We'll teach you how to take shots of constellations as well as meteors.

Our AOAS members will be on hand with their various types and sizes of telescopes and we welcome all visitors. Come and join us for some beautiful deep-sky views as well as great views of Jupiter and its four Galilean moons.
