A Word from Our Fearless Leader

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone this October.

Star party entry fees are $110 for the full Week and $60 for the weekend. The Weekend is Thursday through Sunday. The fees are per astronomer, not per person.

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 and their names. This way we can give the park a head count.

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

We’re looking forward to another great Star Party.

The spring star party last year was an amazing event. The forecast was bleak to say the least, however, the Staunton River Magic happened and brought clear skies every night. Maybe not all night, but we observed every night for at least two hours. Looking for a repeat of the magic.

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.
