Public Star Parties

No Public Star Party on September 2 due to excessive heat

Regular star parties on the first Saturdays of the month, June to July and last Saturday of July, August, and September from 8 PM to 10 PM

Every spring through fall, the Kern Astronomical Society puts on monthly star parties. Sometimes we're at a shopping complex and other times we're at a local park. This spring + summer we'll be at Panorama Park on Panorama Drive near where Linden Ave runs into Panorama Drive. We'll bring the telescopes, you bring an expectation to see some cool things through the telescopes! See Nick Strobel's Night Sky column to find out what will be visible. We meet on the Saturday closest to the First Quarter Moon.

Where: Panorama Park on the bluffs. Google map directions.

When: Saturday closest to First Quarter Moon from 8 PM to 10 PM on June 3, July 1, July 29, September 2, September 30, and October 28.
