You are invited to join the Star Party at 7:30 on September 2! After a short astronomy talk, the Ames Area Amateur Astronomers welcome everyone to take a look through their various telescopes at all the dark Iowa skies have to offer. If the weather is clear, visitors will have the chance to see numerous different galaxies, nebulas and stars millions of light years away, as well as some of the planets in our cosmic back yard, the Solar System.

All ages are welcome, and appropriate attire for the weather and a blanket are recommended.To join in the fun, come to the Star Field, 1523 140th Street at 7 pm for a 7:30 start.
