City Star Parties

City Star Parties – held in San Francisco at the Presidio Parade Grounds, Point Lobos/Lands End,  Pier 17 near the Exploratorium, or other announced locations.

Come out and join us for a great viewing range and low light conditions.  On selected months, prior to sun-down we hold a telescope clinic where members can bring their scope questions and have the collective wisdom of your fellow members help guide you.

Have a specific telescope question? Contact us before the party to make sure someone has expertise to help you.

Check out our Calendar for the next city star party. See you there!
