Star Party: with Fox Valley Astronomical Society at the Park District

January 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Star Party at the Park: with Fox Valley Astronomical Society and Brian Leshin

Join Sycamore Library and Fox Valley Astronomical Society for an evening under the stars at the Sycamore Park District’s Legacy Campus.

On your way into the Community Center, see if you can spy Jupiter through the telescopes set up!

  • Our night begins with special guest Brian Leshin discussing his experience as an Astrophotographer. Brian will share tips and tricks for YOU to capture the night skies.
  • Fox Valley Astronomical Society will give a short presentation on telescopes and Winter astronomy.
  • We will then head outside to learn hands-on how to use a telescope, while looking up for a peek at the Quadrantid Meteor Shower.

Dress warm and bring an outdoor chair and blanket if you wish. Hot Chocolate provided. Event is subject to indoor-only lectures if weather is non-cooperative for telescope use. (Feel free to BYOTelescope if you’ve got one.)
