Do you love looking at the night sky?  Do you wonder about the stars and constellations?  Do you wish you could get a closer look at them?  If so, come join the Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston, Chelmsford Land Conservation Trust, and Chelmsford Historical Society for a star party on Wednesday, September 28, 2022 from 7-10pm.  The event will take place at Sunny Meadow Farm, 168 Robin Hill Road, Chelmsford, MA.  Admission is free, and equipment will be provided by Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston.  The cloud/rain date is Thursday, September 29, 2022.

This is a drop-in event, not a fixed program.  You are welcome to come and go at any time through the evening.  If we are over-crowded we might ask you to come back later.

Also, please do not bring a flashlight unless it is red.  This is to protect everyone’s night vision.

Finally, if the weather is questionable, watch this space for a notice on if the event will happen as scheduled or move to the rain date.  UPDATE Sept 28:  The weather looks great for tonight!
