Library Telescope Presentation and Star Party at Valencia Library
November 6, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Come celebrate Valencia Library’s new telescope, a gift from the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association.
View the sky through the telescope and learn how to use it in your own backyard!
As part of its community outreach, the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association is providing the telescope for checkout to library customers. The group chose this type of telescope for its easy operation and compact design.
The introductory-level sky-viewing instrument is capable of viewing the moon, planets, and distant celestial objects, like the Andromeda Galaxy, 2.5 million light-years away.
