The Barnard-Seyfert Astronomical Society holds public “star parties” in parks where their members set up their telescopes for us to view the object (planet, star, etc) that they have their telescope focused on. Children are welcome, and the members are happy to explain what it is you are viewing. I went to one last year and had a blast.
Let’s meet for dinner at Pizza Perfect in Bellevue, which is close to the star party in Edwin Warner Park. Parking at the park may be limited, so even if you don’t want to eat dinner, you might want to join us there to carpool.
