Star Walk

Join us for a Walk Among the Stars, under the beautiful Wisteria night sky, far from the masking light sources of the city. See the planets and stars visible to the naked eye on a Starwood night. The only planet likely to be visible in the evening is Saturn (although Jupiter and Mars may be visible right before sunrise). Among the constellations likely to be visible are: the Big Dipper, Draco, Sagittarius, Scorpio, Lyra, Cygnus, Cepheus and Cassiopeia, plus the "Summer Triangle". If we're lucky, we may see the Little Dipper, Pegasus and Hercules. (Sam's Star Walk will be scheduled at least twice, just to give us more chances for clear weather.)
