The party will take place at Wildwood Golf Course, which is adjacent to the center, located at 420 Steinhart Park Rd.
Local asstronomers will share their knowledge and their telescopes with the public.
The antique Yeats telescope, which is part of the collection in Wildwood House, will be on display.
Astronomy was a hobby of Ellen Hall Kinney Ware, wife of the original owner of Wildwood House, Jasper Anderson Ware.
She first learned about constellations and other objects in the night sky from an ox team driver as she traveled to the Utah Territory in the 1850s.
