The event is sponsored by Glendale Parks and Recreation Department and hosted by the Saguaro Astronomy Club. Members of the Club will have telescopes large and small set up and available for public viewing from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm (sunset at 5:57 pm). They will show a variety of astronomical objects during these hours, including the Moon, planets, stars, galaxies, and many other deep sky wonders.

Please join us for a night under the stars!
