Astronomy in the Park

Weather looks pretty good for Astronomy in the Park. We'll be at Brittlebank Park from sunset until about 10pm. Stop by after work or before dinner and see what the universe has to offer. Our members will have a telescope or two set up, and will be available to answer your questions about the night sky. 

 We will set up at the south end of the park opposite the Marriott Hotel, and for those attending, we ask that you park in designated parking spaces, and not on the grass.

Please check back here or Facebook for cancellations.

Tonight we have a low, bright pass of the International Space Station that should be interesting. If you don't come out, see if you can see it from where you are!

Bring a flashlight; red cellophane will be provided to cover the lens to make viewing the stars better. Cellphone flashlights can’t be used in the observing area.

Weather permitting. Johns Island County Park, AKA Mullet Hall Equestrian Center, 2662 Mullet Hall Rd, Johns Island, SC 29455. Members will have their telescopes set up behind the headquarters building, which is to the left after entering the park.
