Colorado West Star Party 2007
June 15, 2007 @ 12:00 am - June 17, 2007 @ 12:00 am EDT
The Western Colorado Astronomy Club will host its annual star party from June 15-17, on the beautiful Uncompahgre Plateau, about 40 miles southwest of the city of Grand Junction. The observing site is an alpine meadow at an elevation of 8200 feet (2500 m) and features some of the most transparent skies in North America, with a visual magnitude typically better than 7. It is accessible by most vehicles including large motor homes, and in addition to the excellent observing conditions, we will also sponsor a pot luck supper on Saturday and a door prize raffle. The suggested donation is only $20 per person. For more information and a registration form, please see our web site at www.wcacastronomy.org/SP07.html .
