Come see the evening planets Venus and Jupiter. It is all part of the show during the June Star Parties at Wagman Observatory sponsored by the Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh. The Star Parties start Friday, June 22 and Saturday, June 23 at 8:50 p.m.
The Nicholas E. Wagman Observatory is located in Deer Lakes Regional Park, Frazer Township, Pa., near the village of Russellton in northeastern Allegheny County and some 18 miles from Pittsburgh.
This is an opportunity for amateur astronomers, students and the general public to observe the wonders of the night sky such as the galaxies, planetary nebulae and star clusters.
Did you get a telescope recently and don’t know how to use it? Bring it along and members of the AAAP will help!
