Next event: October 27th star party

Our next event is our monthly First Quarter Friday star party on October 27th. Come enjoy the view of the mid-autumn sky! This will probably be the last good chance for seeing Saturn for a few months, and the Lagoon and Swan nebulae. We'll have the Ring nebula overhead, the globular cluster M15 high in the south, Uranus and Neptune in the east and southeast, and plenty more.

The star party starts at dusk, which will be 6:30 or so. It's at the College Hill Reservoir, 24th and Lawrence in Eugene. If the sky is cloudy on Friday, we'll try again on Saturday the 28th.

New Telescope Lending Page

We have just posted a new page detailing the Eugene Astronomical Society telescope lending program. It provides useful information on the telescopes we lend out and how you can go about picking one up. Check it out here!
