Enchanted Skies Star Party

This is coming up October 2-5 for anyone interested in heading to New Mexico.

The Enchanted Skies Star Party, held in Socorro, New Mexico, offers a unique Southwestern Astronomy experience with many exciting features. We continue our 20 year tradition of presenting outstanding lectures by leading professional and amateur astronomers, observing at 10,600ft, and we'll gather on Saturday night for an evening of great food, Southwestern entertainment and excellent, dark-sky observing. Socorro's dry, high-desert climate, dark skies, and friendly small-town environment provide an excellent dark sky observing experience.

Join us for dark sky observing, astronomy workshops, door prizes, lectures, and insider tours of the Very Large Array and the Magdalena Ridge Observatory.

Nightly observing, lectures, and camping will take place at the Etscorn Campus Observatory and at our official "Dark Sky Site", the Fort Craig National Historic Site, located only about 30 miles South of Socorro. - click here to read all about it.
