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

Next Star Party

February 24th & 25th

Join us at GMARS for our next monthly star party. Enjoy the crisp, clear winter skies of the southern California desert. Our GMARS facility has a heated house, bathrooms, and a kitchen... all the comforts of home!

GMARS star parties begin on Friday and wrap up 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!

Watch this short video of aerial views of the Anza-Borrego Badlands and the Palm Canyon Hotel & RV Resort, home of the Nightfall Star Party & Imaging Conference. Did you miss Nightfall 2016? Get a quick recap here.
