Save the dates!

Dundalk, MD – Bring your telescope or use ours to observe the heavens at the Community College of Baltimore County’s twilight “Star Parties” returning to Dundalk this fall. An eastside tradition on the Dundalk campus located at 7200 Sollers Point Road, “Star Parties” had to be curtailed last year due to a faulty part in its Celestron 14 inch CGE 1400 XLT telescope. The Telescope has been repaired and reinstalled. The CCBC Astronomy Program is looking forward to seeing you during our Friday night “Star Parties.”
