June 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. Dress very warmly--estimate clothing for 20 degrees colder than the predicted temperature.

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/MHAA%20Star%20Party%20Etiquette%20Guide.pdf

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

      You did John, but it wasn't a total washout. Had a couple of hours of pretty clear skies. Got to see ISS and meet several new people.

    Would have been great if Mother Nature had cooperated. The clouds cleared out for a while about 9:30ish and stayed mostly clear til about 11 or so. Caught all the planets and showed them to a few new people and some people that just happened by. A pretty good night overall.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
