Bring your friends or family to Astronomy Night and find out how much fun it is to stargaze with an ocean view! As twilight fades a beautiful crescent moon will add sparkle to the sky and be our first telescopic target. Saturn is perfectly placed for viewing with its wonderful ring system that is beautifully tilted wide-open right now. Mars, while getting further away from Earth with each passing day, is still worth a look. Late in the evening and if the clouds stay away, we will visit sparkling double stars, star clusters, and maybe a nebula or two. If you have never seen planets or deep space objects through large telescopes, you will be amazed!
Seal Beach Astronomy Nights are co-hosted by Michael Beckage, our favorite Astronomy expert! We set up the telescopes right across the street from Bogart's on the left side of the Seal Beach pier.
If you have a telescope, please feel free to bring it to Astronomy Night. You don’t have to be an expert and it's rewarding to share anything you know with someone else. The star parties are great for kids of all ages and best of all provide serious entertainment at an unbeatable price. (Free, that is!)
