CEDAR CITY – The Southern Utah Space Foundation is hosting an astrophotography Party Saturday at 6 p.m. at Three Peaks Recreational Area.
In this last event of 2016, the group will offer viewers a large telescope and a new 6-inch telescope on an equatorial mount.
Astrophotography enthusiasts are encouraged to attend, along with anyone who just wants to look through a telescope.
The event is free and open to the public. However, donations help purchase better equipment and are always deeply appreciated.
It is recommended that participants show up on time, dress appropriately for the temperatures and bring a blanket or chair for additional warmth and comfort.
Depending on attendance, the party will be held either at Pavilion 1 or at the Visitors Center, which is on the side of the road before you enter Three Peaks Recreation Area.
Members of the Southern Utah Space Foundation will stay until everyone has their fill of viewing. In the event of inclement weather, a representative will still be at the viewing location at 6 p.m., and if the party is rained or snowed out and no one shows up by 7 p.m., the event will be canceled.
