EVERETT — People interested in astronomy can learn more by attending the annual fall skywatching parties planned for tonight and Saturday.

The Everett Astronomical Society will hold free public observing sessions on the lawn at Harborview Park,1700 W. Mukilteo Blvd., from dusk, about 6 p.m., until 11:30 p.m. The event will be canceled if it’s overcast or rainy.

It’s a chance for people to learn and get their questions answered about the range of telescopes that are available, how different telescopes compare and talk with local expert amateur astronomers.
