RAS Star Parties

2014 Schedule

Typical GMARS star parties start Friday afternoon/evening and go through Sunday morning. They include observing/imaging on Friday night, hanging out and socializing on Saturday, the world-famous RAS Star-B-Q Saturday afternoon, another night of observing/imaging on Saturday night, and packing up, cleaning up, and departing on Sunday morning.

Of course, things work a bit differently at the RTMC Astronomy Expo, Nightfall, Mt. Laguna, and Grandview Campground star parties. You can click a link below for more information on the various star party locations.
