Star Party

Washoe Lake State Park

The Northern Nevada Astronomy Group will have various sizes of telescopes available for viewing stars, planets and other wonders of the night sky. They will do a short slide presentation while participants wait for it to get dark enough for the telescopes. Participants should bring a jacket, red light if possible (red light does not negatively affect night vision), and a lawn chair.
WHEN: Saturday, June 16, 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
WHERE: Washoe Lake State Park Maze Parking Lot. Take Exit 44 from I-580 and drive north on Eastlake Blvd. approximately four miles. The park entrance will be on the left. Turn left past the fee booth and it’s the first parking lot on the right.
COST: The park entrance fee is $5 per vehicle. Cash, credit cards, and checks. There is no additional charge for this program.
