ASTROBLAST is an annual event, first held in June 1994, by the Oil Region Astronomical Society. Our organization is blessed with a remote "dark sky" site located far from the light pollution of large urban areas. The event is held in a large field surrounding our observatory known as Lockwood Group Campground at Venango County's Two Mile Run Park, near Franklin, Pennsylvania.
Astroblast is a regional gathering of amateur astronomers and those interested from the general public. Lectures, information and educational sessions, and dark-sky observing are all a part of our annual Star Party. The event is open to registered participants only. On-site registration will be available during the event. Newcomers are welcome to attend.
Camping and access to local showers are included in the event fees: $24-Individual; $48-Family.
Lists of Door prizes, Vendors, and the Event Schedule will be updated and listed on our web site www.oras.org on the ASTROBLAST page.
Driving directions and maps are also there on the OBSERVATORY page.
We hope to see you there for a fun and informative time.
