Coyote Lake County Park Summer Star Party Series

Mike Koop

Saturday, June 3rd, between 9:00 and 12:00 p.m. the SJAA and The Astronomy Connection (TAC) will host the first of a series of public star parties at Coyote Lake County Park. Coyote park is the one of the most convenient summer observing sites in the area. It is a short 45 minute drive from Houge Park. Through the efforts of SJAA/TAC member Denny Woolaghan, astronomical use of Coyote is free during the year. The SJAA and TAC have agreed to provide Star Party support for the Ranger Program during the summer. The SJAA will support the Park Rangers in their public program efforts by setting up our telescopes to share views with all those present from the campgrounds or those who drive in just for the Star Party. Since last year’s Star Parties were such a success drawing people, the viewing will be moved to the Boat Launch Ramp Parking Lot which is located about 2 miles from the Ranger Station/Visitor Center. Come on out and support the star party as your way of thanking the staff for making this great observing site available to us.
