Staunton River 2023 Spring Star Party!
March 20 – 26, 2023

A Word from Our Fearless Leader

Registration Is Closed!

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone this March.

Due to increasing prices for supporting infrastructure, we are reluctantly increasing the entry fees. The entry fees for the week will be increased from $90 to $110, and the weekend, from $50 to $60. This is still per astronomer, not per person.

You may also go to PayPal directly to send your registration. Use our email address, to find us. The fees again are $110 for the full week and $60 for the weekend (Thursday-Sunday). Please add a message including your name as you would want it on your name tag and how many people will be coming with you. This way we can give the park a head count. 

You may also send in your registration directly to;
P.O. Box 3001
Chapel Hill, NC 27514

If you experience any problems, let us know. We’ll work with you.

Star Party registration will close March 15th.

The spring star party is a smaller version of the Fall. We do not have any scheduled speakers or activities. This is a chance to dust off your equipment and come and enjoy the dark skies that are Staunton River State Park. We will have movies in the event of inclement weather.

If you have a talk that you would like to present, let us know and we will make it happen.

Again, we are looking forward to seeing everyone in March.
