Star Party

The Salt Lake Astronomical Society is hosting star parties all over Utah. The next one will be on July 14 at Wheeler Farm, 6351 S. 900 E. from dusk until 11 p.m. Everyone is welcome to chat with SLAS members and take a peek through their telescopes. On July 15, there will be another party at the Stansbury Park Observatory Complex in Tooele at the same time. Families are welcome, and members are happy to answer any and all questions. However, the society does recommend leaving phones in pockets or purses to avoid disrupting the party with bright lights and to prevent damage being done to both the phone and any telescopes.
