Flagstaff Star Party & Interactive Stargazing
09/28/2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Flagstaff Star Party joins with Lowell Observatory on September 28 at 8 pm PDT for virtual, interactive stargazing ahead of the on-site star party at Buffalo Park (http://www.flagstaffdarkskies.org/the-flagstaff-star-party/). Broadcasting live from Lowell’s Giovale Open Deck Observatory (https://lowell.edu/godo), astronomer Dr. David Koerner and cultural astronomer Dr. Danielle Adams will guide viewers through beautiful and awe-inspiring views of Saturn, Jupiter, star clusters and gaseous nebulae, and many other wonders that Flagstaff’s dark autumn skies have to offer.
Along the way, they will talk about both modern astronomy and the heritage of Arabian astronomy that is present in our modern star names. After showcasing these planned celestial objects through the GODO’s 14″ PlaneWave CDK telescope, they’ll let you choose which objects to see next via YouTube’s chat function.
