OAK FLAT PUBLIC STAR PARTY--FOURTH IN THE SUMMER SERIES! 

SATURDAY, AUGUST 22nd 

Nine Miles South of Tijeras on #337; one mile in from Oak Flat cutoff

TAAS will host the next Oak Flat Star Party on Saturday, August 22nd, opening parking gates at 5:30pm. Please arrive early to park and orient yourselves and to talk with our scope operators as they set up.

Sunset is at 7:47pm, allowing us to begin observing earlier.  We will have a laser-guided constellation tour as the stars pop out.

Bring a jacket or layers as the evening can be chilly; pack water and/or food as none is available on site.  Red flashlights or headlamps will help preserve night vision on the observing field.
