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, we will focus on a beautiful 8-day waxing gibbous moon. The amazing topography of our nearest celestial neighbor is always an awe-inspiring sight. Jupiter, always an amazing sight, is well placed for close-up views of its interesting cloud bands and four “Galilean” moons. As the evening progresses we will turn our attention to the best star clusters and deep space objects the early summer sky has to offer. If you have never seen the moon, planets, or deep space objects through large telescopes, you will be amazed!
Many wonders await discovery at the eyepiece of powerful telescopes provided by our hard-working volunteer astronomers. 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!)
