DUE TO PREDICTED DENSE CLOUD COVER AND THUNDERSTORMS, THE STAR PARTY PLANNED FOR SEPT. 9/10 IS CANCELLED.   

This free public stargazing event will take place in the beautiful dark skies of Green Lane Park.  Adults and children are welcome.  Provided the skies cooperate, we will have a lovely view of Saturn, and other celestial objects.  

All DVAA Members are invited to set up telescopes for this event!

DVAA members will set up and operate a number of telescopes and binoculars, and members of the public are invited to observe through these telescopes.  The event will take place in the field adjacent to the Auditorium Parking Lot (approximate address 2298 Green Lane Road, Green Lane, PA  18054, or more precisely use GPS coordinates 40.3348995, -75.4859932).   After entering the Park, follow signs for Auditorium.  

The rain/cloud date is Sept. 10.   For last minute weather announcements, visit www.dvaa.org.
