Join West Chester Recreation and the Chester County Astronomical Society on Saturday, October 8th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm for a night under the stars at Hoopes Park. Members of the Chester County Astronomical Society, a group of amateur astronomers, will bring telescopes and expertise to Hoopes Park to share the wonders of the night sky.

October 8th is Astronomy Day! On Astronomy Day thousands of people who have never looked through a telescope will have the opportunity at hundreds of "star parties" across the United States.

As the glow of the Sun fades we’ll gaze at a First Quarter Moon and the red planet Mars. As it gets fully dark we can look at the summer and fall constellations which will have nebulas and star clusters to view through telescopes and binoculars.
