Next Meetup

February 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. A telescope is not required. 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 and your make and model car. We need this to provide 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: https://files.meetup.com/2674222/MHAA%20Star%20Party%20Etiquette%20Guide.pdf As usual, we will be in the West Beach parking lot at Lake Taghkanic. Note: Our star gazing events in the colder months are great for viewing but you should dress very warmly. You notice the cold more when standing still outside than you might expect.
