Coachella Valley (Riverside County)
Saturday, May 19 has been designated International Sidewalk Astronomy Night, a worldwide event. To commemorate
ISAN, local amateur astronomers have arranged three sites for sky viewing --
In Palm Springs:
Daytime telescopic viewing of the crescent Moon and Venus, in front of Nature’s Rx Natural Foods Store and Cafe,
on Sunrise Way, 0.2 mile south of Ramon Road, from 5 until 6 p.m.
Near and in Palm Desert:
Beginning at dusk, the Astronomical Society of the Desert will host a free public sky watching session, if the sky is clear,
at Sawmill Trailhead at elevation 4000 feet, just off Hwy. 74 about 15 miles south of Hwy. 111 in Palm Desert. Turn left off
Hwy. 74 onto Pinon Flats Transfer Station Road (look for the Cactus Springs Trail sign), about
0.4 mile past Sugarloaf Café on Hwy. 74. Then drive in 0.3 mile to the parking lot for the Sawmill Trailhead. Plan to arrive
before dark. For more information and a map, visit the Society’s web site at http://www.astrorx.org
For those who find it more convenient to attend a free sky watch in the city that evening, a telescope will be set up for
observations of the Moon and planets from 8:00 until 10:30 p.m., just outside the Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Palm Desert,
on Hwy 111 near Monterey Ave.
I'll be in front of Ben & Jerry's in downtown Burbank near the AMC theaters.
Tom White will be either be with me or possibly on the corner of San Fernando and Orange Grove. We'll
also have another scope somewhere in the area.
George Willis will be near the mall, across from IKEA near Chevy's.
I’ll be setting up one
(possibly two) telescopes on the 19th. Our evening targets are Saturn and the Moon. Location: Davis, California, USA Just west of Russell and
Lake, on the bike path just past where the lights end in “West”
Davis. Who: John Terschak Time: 8:30pm

comment: I was able to enjoy a night to remember with a large group when I was younger, It was held at N.A.S.A in Cleveland
Ohio there were so many scopes to take a peak with, I'm glad your giving this same opportunity to others like myself, It was
an overwhelming feeling one I'll never forget. and one I hope will be a night to remember for others. Thanks Rebecca

International Sidewalk Astronomy Night
Saturday, May 19, 2007 at Francis Park
Come and stargaze with members of the Saint Louis Astronomical Society on Saturday evening, May 19 at
Francis Park in south St. Louis. John Dobson, famous for promoting amateur astronomy to the general public, is promoting this
event as the "first International Sidewalk Astronomy Night." The goal is to take 1,000 telescopes to the public on the same
night worldwide, reaching hundreds of thousands of people and uniting amateur astronomers on different continents. For more
information on this worldwide event, see www.sidewalkastronomynight.com
Our own local event will be held right here in Francis Park in south St. Louis city, on Tamm Avenue at
Itaska Street. Come and take a look at the beautiful crescent Moon, Venus, and the magnificent ringed planet Saturn, and speak
to experienced local amateur astronomers about our fascinating universe. The International Sidewalk Astronomy Night event
at Francis Park begins at 7:00 pm and ends at 10:00 pm. In case of heavy clouds or rain, we will be there again for our regular
stargazing event on Wednesday, May 23 at 7:00 pm.

Herman Heyn, the renowned Baltimore Sidewalk Astronomer, sent me an email describing International Sidewalk
Astronomy Night. As one of the larger astronomy
organizations in the Mid Atlantic, we are interested in experimenting with sidewalk astronomy. We are active in much public outreach, but have always worked at schools
or our club observatory. Never in downtown Princeton. Herman has shown me the way, and we are planning to set
up adjacent to our public library. Princeton is well-known for its university as well as the Institute for Advanced
Study (where, among many others, Einstein did most of his later work).
The Albuquerque Astronomical Society has 4 telescope operators committed to ISAN. We will be setting up outside
the Flying Star Cafe on Juan Tabo Blvd. NE, from 7pm until they close. (Barring weather complications.)
Thank you for organizing this event.
Truth or Consequences
I'm in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. I don't believe there is a club here but I love
your idea. I'll set up two scopes at the small park separating the two one way streets of Main and Broadway at the Nth
end of town. I haven't used them for awhile myself but I'm sure I can pick out Saturn, Jupiter (I believe will be out),
and a few deep sky objects……Saturn never ceases to amaze though. Count me in and kudos to whoever is on
Well this year it's just me and some friends. However for next year I have the local planetarium where I am a volunteer
interested . I am working on the local observatory and a local conservation center that has a direct Hubble hook up as well.
So keep me in the loop. If it rains we will do something in doors.
Thanks John E. VanLoke JVANLOKE@stny.rr.com

Rik Davis and I will probably be at 81 St. & Central Park West, where the subway and the bus stop are. That's a higher
traffic area (I think) than inside the park. We are still considering Turtle Pond as an alternative, though.
downside of the Central Park West location is that the trees will block the view of Venus and the Moon from sometime in the
middle of the evening--we wouldn't be able to follow it very far down. There's a lot of sky viewable from that spot, though.
It's surely not as dark as Turtle Pond, but I think the idea of May 19 is to go where we don't normally go so as to catch
the public where THEY are. While the warm weather does bring a lot of people into the park, a far greater number of people
come out of the subway exit on Central Park West and go to and from that bus stop.
Since Turtle Pond is just inside
the park there, I guess we could always try Central Park West and then move into the park when Venus goes behind the tree,
if it seems like a better choice.

place. This will be
International Sidewalk Astronomy Night, when amateurs
around the globe will take their scopes out for passersby to look
We'll have something to show them, for a crescent Moon will be only 1 degree
from Venus in the west. In addition,
Saturn will be up and at 9:30 PM
Jupiter rises in the southeast. Three of Jupiter's moons will be visible -
if you wait
until 11:20 PM, Io will reappear from behind Jupiter.
Those of you who don't have telescopes can bring binoculars,
which will be
perfect to show the Moon and Venus. If you don't have binoculars, bring
yourself. You'll have a fun time
and help create a "critical mass" of
people so that folks walking by will stop to see what's going on.
we go? Where people are! For example, I'll be at the Brooklyn
Heights Promenade at the end of Montague Street. On a balmy
evening it gets pretty crowded. You may have a similar spot nearby.
How will people know where the
telescopes are? If you're bringing a scope
or binoculars, once you've picked a spot, let me know where, when and what
at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll post it on our website www.aaa.org

I have invited everyone (about 37 people) from the local camera club I belong to to show up tomorrow night in my backyard
in Strasburg, OH to view through my recently acquired Orion 12" Skyquest Dobsonian. Don't know how many will show up
but in the words of my good friend Fritz Kleinhans, professor of astronomy at Indiana University and high school compatriot,
My group is definitely up for this one. We have done a lot of sidewalk astronomy and people love it. Businesses also
love it when we set up outside their establishment. The Southeast Ohio Astronomical Society will have telescopes set

I'm on the board of the Northern Cross Science Foundation, an amateur astro club north of the city of Milwaukee
So far, we'll have 8 members with 8 telescopes and a pair of big binoculars at the newly re-opened Bayshore Town Center
(mall) in Glendale, WI. Our exact location can be found on our web site:

We'll have Dobs of all sizes, some 15x77 binos, and an ETX-125. Mall management is very interested in having us set up.
This event is very coincidental - I was already in conversations with their Events Planner about doing sidewalk astronomy
only days before we learned of the ISAN. I'm confident the event will be "attended" by dozens of passers-by. Hopefully scores
of them - or more!. I believe that the mall management will invite us back throughout the summer.
This is such a great idea!
PLEASE visit our web page and add links to the NCSF/ISAN page
