Upcoming Star Party Status

Regrettably, the weather forecast for this evening has gotten worse, as I'm sure you can tell.
In fact, the predicted clearing has been moved back to 2am. Our regrets and thanks for your patience.

The weather forecast for this Saturday's event at Lost Dutchman State Park looks disappointing but we have not yet canceled.
Please re-visit this site later in the week for any changes/updates. If a cancellation is needed, an email wll be sent to the Notification group.

That aside, this year we are planning to have several unscheduled events, such as Sun Parties (for solar observing) and a couple Moon Parties. To be informed of these “impromptu” events, please join our public Notification group by visiting https://groups.io/g/SuperMtnAstro-Notify/join and submitting your email address.

Please re-visit this site periodically for any updates. And, again, you can enroll in the above mentioned notification list to receive any updates,  cancellation notices or announcements of unscheduled events by visiting  https://groups.io/g/SuperMtnAstro-Notify/join  and submitting your email address.

Please monitor this page for any status changes as each star party date approaches.
The status of all upcoming star parties and any cancellation notices, if necessary, will be posted on this page.

Please see the "Current Event Schedule" below for details about future events.​​
