Event Details

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.

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.
