Star Party Status

We had an amazing October Star party. One hundred ten folks came to Staunton River State Park to enjoy the dark skies and the park didn’t hide them from us. Everyone left sufficiently exhausted looking at the night skies. The Milkyway spilled from horizon to horizon. We had two nights that the stars didn’t stay all night, but that gave us time to get some sleep. The temperatures were mild and the park during the day was glorious with fall colors.

We’re looking forward to the Spring event already. Those Dates are March 20 – 26. Join us next spring for some wonderous skies. Go here for more information:
