Enjoy an evening with friends and family under the stars on March 16, 2013 between 6:30 to 9:30pm. The Hillsborough “Sourland Star Party” is hosting a free event to highlight the arrival of Comet PANSTARRS. Located on a dark “Starry Hill” on Montgomery Rd. 0.8 mile south of Amwell Road and about seven miles west of Rte. 206/Amwell or eight miles east of Rte. 31 and Amwell/Old York Road. Many amateur astronomers and their telescopes will be available to let you view the wonders of the crescent moon, planets, star clusters, galaxies, double stars and other deep space objects.
Feel free to bring your telescope too, if you have one ~ be a part of the astro-evening! A “Star Party” experience guaranteed to “WOW” young and old alike. Hot coffee and hot chocolate will be available to keep you warm.
