Sunset is around . A public star party will begin once it gets dark enough. Planetary views will get us through twilite. In past years, public observers rarely excede 25 and usually leave by . The pavilion is available for observing breaks, all night long. The MVAS coffee pot will be hard at work too. Please be rested for a safe drive home. A few hours’ nap in your vehicle is very appropriate. Someone from MVAS will be there, into the early morning for company.
