NOVA Astronomy Club stargazing party

The Northern Virginia Astronomy Club is hosting a public stargazing party at C.M. Crockett Park this Saturday. Planetologist Dr. Tom Jones will be speaking  at 6:00 p.m. He co-authored a book on the formation of the solar system with a planetary geologist.

Added bonus: visitors can stick around and observe some of the wonders of the universe through a variety of telescopes operated by very nice, knowledgeable people.
