Dark Sky Night at Barr Lake

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

So far it look like we might beat the weather for this satruday.

I realy enjoy being out at Barr Lake, it is so much darker, and it fun to hear and sometimes see the wild life to. 

Can’t wait to get the telescope out again….

Welcome to the Brighton Astronomy Group Blog

Welcome to the Brighton Astronomy Group Blog.

 

This has been an exciting year for us.

 

We started out the year with our 1st Awards being giving out to our many volunteers and supporters from the following year,  with the help of the NASA Night Sky Network.

 

We were able to successfully get the park at 22nd and Bromley Lane renamed to “Observatory Park”

 

In March we had our 3rd annual Messier Marathon at Barr Lake State park and had our biggest turn out to date so far.

 

On the 16th of May we were invited by the Bromley Creek H.O.A. to host a public star party at Observatory Park. This was our first summer star party and we had over a 120 people from all age groups and walks of life show up, some of the set up telescopes, and other just viewed through ours. Wes and Adam did outreach education on what is a light year, scale of the universe, why images in the telescope do not look like the pictures, and light pollution.

 

And we know have our own web site up and running www.brightonastronomy.com

 

Can’t wait to see how the rest of the year turns out…

 

Thanks for everyone’s support.
