Next star party of the Riverside Astronomical Society–The best astronomy club in southern California!

Next Star Party

April 21st & 22nd

The next star party is coming up. Join us at GMARS before summer sets in and it gets crazy hot! Late Spring and early Summer are great times to be in the southern California desert. Plus, GMARS has a house, bathrooms, a kitchen—all the comforts of home!

GMARS star parties begin on Friday afternoon/evening and wrap up on Sunday morning. Be sure to join us for the potluck Star-B-Q on Saturday afternoon (roughly 60-90 minutes before sun down). We provide the dogs, burgers and fixings. You provide a sidedish, dessert or beverages!

A bolide appeared in the sky over GMARS on April 10, 2017 at 8:58PM PDT. The All Sky Cam picked up a few frames of it. Click the image for a slightly larger version.
