EarthCare Sky Watching May 16
Astronomy in the Park, presented by the San Antonio Astronomical Association, is the longest running public star party in the San Antonio Metro area. We’ll join them on Wednesday May 16, from 7:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. in the parking lot at Raymond Rimkus Park, 6440 Evers Rd, Leon Valley Texas, 78240. You do not need to be a member of the club or own any astronomical equipment to attend. All you need is an interest in the wonders of the Universe. This event is free to the public.
Preparation for the observing session begins at home. Dress appropriately for the time of year! Please check the weather forecast. For lighting, cover a flashlight in red cellophane (darker the better). Bring along water to keep hydrated. Please dim your vehicles headlights when arriving and departing.
Feel free to walk around and enjoy the sights through the equipment on display but please ask the owner before using. It’s best to control children around expensive astronomical equipment. Pets should not be brought onto the observing field.

What is Unity EarthCare?
Unity EarthCare Teams are in churches all over the country. They originated from Unity Worldwide Ministries. Unity EarthCare Teams (UETs) promote awareness of our oneness with the earth. Unity EarthCare Teams also encourage caregiving for all creation.
From the Publication entitled EarthCare Package available from Unity Worldwide Ministries Website, “UET rose up from the grassroots of the Unity movement, coming from the deep desire to express Unity’s belief in our oneness with all divine life in ways that directly impact for our planet home. As in so many areas in Unity, we saw the importance of walking the talk. Our vision statement reads, “All humanity lives in a spiritual consciousness that manifests as loving coexistence with all creation and care for our Earth home. We act so that every step on our planet home and through our life here is an active prayer for all divine creation.”
EarthCare is about being mindful stewards of all the natural resources our planet has to offer. EarthCare encourages others to do so through outreach and education. This ministry is certainly in alignment with the fifth Unity Principle, “Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them.”
