Join MTRP Trail Guide and resident Astronomer, George Varga, at the far end of the Kumeyaay Lake Campground's Day Use Parking Lot, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. A telescope will be available to view the nighttime sky! In consideration of others, no lanterns or white-light flashlights are permitted near the telescope. Star Party cancelled if raining or cloudy The Moon will be one day after Full Moon so there will be considerable light pollution in addition to the city lights. Views of the Andromeda Galaxy (M31) and its companion M32 should be wonderful. Also up for viewing are the Pleiades (Seven Sisters), the Double Cluster in Perseus and numerous Open Clusters scattered across the sky.
