Harrison Bay Star Party

Join the BAS at Harrison Bay State Park for the monthly Harrison Bay State Park Star Party! The BAS will have telescopes, binoculars, and night-sky experts eager to share the glories of the night sky.

There will be a nice variety of heavenly objects on display: the Full Moon will be dominating the sky, with glowing Mars and brilliant Saturn riding high in the sky.  The constellations of summer of putting in their appearance.  In addition to telescopic wonders, there will be constellation identification, stories, and more.

Stargazing (and moongazing and planetgazing!) begins at 8:00 pm and should last until 10 or 11 pm or so (we'll stay as long as people want to look into our telescopes or the Rangers kick us out ;)

This event is FREE and everyone is welcome! 

In the event of inclement weather, this event will be repeated in August.  Check Meetup.com for updates on the day of the event.


From TN HWY 153, take TN HWY 58 North towards Decatur, TN. Travel 8.3 miles to Harrison Bay Road; turn left. There is a pretty big sign for the park. On Harrison Bay Road, travel approximately 1.5 miles to the main park entrance on the left - turn left. Stay to the right at the fork in the road and continue about 0.5 miles. Parking will be available around the Recreation Hall. Watch for signs to guide you in.

The observation field will be in the large parking area next to the Recreation Hall. Come and enjoy the sky!
