On the weekend of the Third Quarter moon, members of the Escambia Amateur Astronomers conduct Deep Sky Gazes for the campers of the Florida State Parks at the boat ramp area of Big Lagoon State Park, west of Pensacola, near the Alabama state line. We set up and compare telescopes, do deep sky imaging, hand out free current star maps, watch satellite passes, show guests how to us their smartphones for constellation and satellite photography, and conduct green laser pointer constellation tours. The public is invited, but be sure to check in before sundown.
