Star Party at Galaxy Quest Observatory

Star Party at Galaxy Quest Observatory
Saturday, December 16, 2017, at 6:00pm
84 Vancycle Road, Lincolnville, ME


Ah, delicious! The clear, steady skies of winter! They come hand-in-hand with a bit of a chill in the air, but now is prime time for astronomy. Not only are the views better, but lots of fascinating objects are overhead in the early-falling darkness. We can start early, enjoy long observations of the year’s best astronomy, and still quit at a comfortably early bed time.


Join us at Galaxy Quest Observatory in Lincolnville this Saturday, December 16, at 6:00pm. Rather than melt the wax poetic about Donkey Universe Farm, the gorgeous environs of Galaxy Quest, with its views toward mountains and sea, we’ll cut to the wintery chase: it’s famous for its heated control room and water closet. Why stay home in some drafty house, when you could dress warmly for the year’s best astronomy, and then thaw out in such comfort?


A few pointers:

• The party will start at 6:00pm, not 4:30pm as originally posted on both the Web page and Facebook.
• There will be no rain date for this star party, as the following week is too close to Christmas.
• Stop by the Lincolnville Center General Store prior to the star party for a wine tasting, 2:00pm-6:00pm. Munch a wood-fired pizza, or perhaps the ultimate hamburger, to fuel your furnace for the night! 269 Main Street, Lincolnville, Maine, not ten minutes from Galaxy Quest.
