Events at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park

Upcoming

    • Sat, October 07, 2017
    • 7:00 PM - 11:59 PM
    • UAC - Tom Sawyer Park

    The LAS welcomes anyone interested in astronomy to visit us at the Urban Astronomy Center (UAC) located in E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park for our monthly Star Party.

    This month see the Moon 3 days after full and hear the stories of the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse here in Kentucky!

    Members may arrive early for set-up. If the ground is wet we will set-up behind the building on the asphalt. Scope set-up is weather dependent. Our scopes are unable to penetrate the clouds and heavy moisture such as rain drops are bad for the electronics.

    Directions and map to EP Tom Sawyer State Park

    The LAS welcomes one and all at our Star Parties. If you have a scope and are having trouble figuring out how to use it, please feel free to bring it to our Star Party. 

    The LAS is an IRC §501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Donations are welcome.

    May your scope and skies be clear at the same time. Hope to see you there.
