Next Star Party

July 1st & 2nd

Don't miss the first summer star party of the year! It's hot out at GMARS but it's nice and comfortable in the house during the day. Nighttime observing in shorts and a T-shirt? Yes, please!

GMARS star parties start on Friday afternoon/evening and go through Sunday morning. Be sure to join us Saturday evening for our Star-B-Q! Get more info by clicking the link below.

Did you miss the May 9th transit of Mercury across the face of the Sun? Check out Daniel Perry's video of his weekend trip to GMARS featuring the full transit (sped up, of course).
