"Observe the first quarter moon and look for Mercury, visible only briefly after sunset, and Neptune on the thrilling roof of SciPort during the monthly star parties," says Jennifer Tuxen.

"We'll bring our telescopes out on the roof to observe planets, open clusters, and nebulae. Sci-Port's staff will take you deeper with a lecture about Current NASA Missions, and a Soace Dome movie will transport you to the heart of some unusual Wonders of the Universe. The event will proceed even if there is bad weather."

Cost is $3/member; $5/public
