Explore the night sky with the San Antonio Astronomical Association. 8:00PM - 10:00PM. View the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, and Omega Centauri. We’ll also look for star clusters, nebula, and much more. You can also learn the basics of telescope operation. Bring your own telescope or binoculars, or enjoy the sights from one of the SAAA’s telescopes. No pets please. Park in Parking Lot A and walk the short distance to Parking Lot C where the telescopes will be set up. Dress for the weather. Bring water, a snack if you like, and your own flashlight with a red lens cover. Open to all ages; participants under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Reservations are not required.
