For those who have been meaning to get out to Red Rock State Park for their star parties — nighttime viewings and astronomy presentations — the last chance for the season is coming on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 7:15 p.m.Red Rock State Park Manager Keith Ayotte, a gray alien [Assistant Park Manager Eric Buzonas], Astronemers of Verde Valley President J.D. Maddy and Keep Sedona Beautiful member Birgit Loewenstein will be on hand to help park visitors identify stellar objects at the last Star Party of the year on Saturday, Nov. 9.


Halley Bagley, ranger specialist with the park, said that the whole series has been in collaboration with the Astronomers of the Verde Valley, who volunteer their time, knowledge and resources — chiefly their telescopes — as a program that started in the spring, and now also includes participation from Keep Sedona Beautiful as part of their efforts to have Sedona classified as an official Dark Sky Community.

“Keep Sedona Beautiful is excited to be a partner in sponsoring this fun and interesting star party.  Once you look through one of the telescopes you may want to make astronomy your new hobby,” Joanne Kendrick of KSB said. “Come and enjoy the beauty of our Sedona night sky!”
