September Star Party

Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh

– Come see the planets Saturn, Mars, Venus and Neptune and the Moon one and a half days after First Quarter. It’s all part of the show during the September Star Party sponsored by the Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh. Observe the Hercules Cluster, the Ring Nebula and the Andromeda Galaxy. 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. Did you get a telescope recently and don't know how to use it? Bring it along and members of the AAAP will help! Looking to buy a telescope, accessories, star charts and books? Wagman Observatory is the place to start. We'll have free handouts, guides and booklets to point visitors in the right direction. The Star Parties will be held WEATHER PERMITTING.
