Submitted by the Event Organizer
The San Francisco Amateur Astronomers puts on monthly (approximately) public events with a public lecture on the stars followed by a public viewing through telescopes. Events start at sunset and are held at Lands End (Point Lobos) in the North-western corner of San Francisco in between the Presidio and Ocean Beach.
If you show up an hour early, the Sidewalk Astronomers conduct a telescope clinic. Send an email if you want to attend. If they know you’re coming, they might be able to track down an expert for you.
- By email: email@example.com
Please let them know what date you plan to attend, and what kind of telescope you’re bringing.
Directions to Point Lobos:
Located at the large parking area in the Lands End section of western San Francisco on El Camino Del Mar.
- If you are driving west on Pt. Lobos, turn right on El Camino del Mar opposite the Seal Rock Inn. There is a dedicated right turn lane which leads to an uphill road.
- Northbound on the Great Highway, follow the highway as it becomes Point Lobos Avenue and passes the Cliff House. After you pass a small road called Merrie Way, take the next left onto El Camino Del Mar and follow the road uphill.
- You will pass Seal Rock Street on your right and will see a “Not a Through Street” sign and another sign for Fort Miley. Continue until the road ends in a parking lot.
