August Star Party


Aug 16


Menke Observatory - Near the Wapsi River Environmental Education Center

Another Moonless deep-sky evening, with Mars and Saturn now both in the southwest sky.  

The peak of the Perseid meteor shower was a few days ago, but maybe some late ones will show up late tonight before the Moon rises.

Cost: Free
