November Star Party

Enjoy the night sky away from the bright lights of the towns and cities in our area! The night will be dark - perfect for star gazing. Bring your own telescopes and binoculars or use those provided by our members.

RSVP is required at least one day beforehand. As a reminder, when you RSVP that you are attending, you will be asked to provide your license plate number. We need this to provide (number only) to the Park management who will then provide it to the State Police and State Park Police. If you are not on the list, you are not supposed to be there as we are there after park hours. If you are there and not on the list and the Police show up, we are not sure what the consequences will be.

Please review our guide to star party etiquette if you have not been to one of our star parties before: http://files.meetup.com/2674222/Star%20Party%20Etiquette.pdf

If the weather/clouds don't cooperate, it may get pushed off to the next day (Saturday).

As usual, we will be in the West Beach parking lot at Lake Taghkanic.

    With my 17.5", I looked at M33, M27, Orion nebula, Uranus, Neptune, Jupiter and a wonderful collection of 6 NGC galaxies all in nearly one field of view in Pisces, as well as a few other 12 - 13 magnitude galaxies.

    It was an honor to be in the midst of fellow star gazers. This was my first Party and although I did not stay very long, the night sky was beautiful. Willie gave me a tour of the night sky visually and through his scope. Thank you Willie, truly informative. John and Rex were also very knowledgeable when it came to Astrophotography and their scopes. I'm glad I decided to come, now like everyone else I am hooked !

    Weather is marginal, but event is still on and I am going. We may be able to see something between the clouds.

    Just as a reminder to all, we need your license plate number when you RSVP. This is to pass on to the park management and is a state requirement. Thanks,
    Ken

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
