Head to the Main Parade Ground in the Presidio to catch a sight rarely seen by city eyes: the majesty of the night sky. San Francisco Amateur Astronomers provide the telescopes and the know-how to guide this stargazing party—spy a 9-day-old moon, planets and nebulae, and maybe even Algol, colloquially as the Demon Star.
