CCC Hosts a Star Party

Jul 1, 2019, 08:34 AM by CCC Staff

OREGON CITY - The Clackamas Community College Environmental Learning Center in Oregon City is hosting a star party on July 19.

This stargazing event will allow participants to see the cloud bands and largest moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and the rising of the waning gibbous moon – weather permitting.

Volunteers from Rose City Astronomers will be on site to share views through their telescopes. In addition to viewing the planets and moon, there will be double stars, star clusters, nebulae and maybe even a few galaxies to look at!

The Star Party will run 9-11:30 p.m. on July 19. Participants should meet at the CCC athletic fields near the intersection of John Inskeep Drive and Douglas Loop, near the Environmental Learning Center. Participants are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and binoculars. The college is located at 19600 Molalla Ave.
