Grand Canyon Star Party 2011

June 18, 2011 @ 12:00 am - June 25, 2011 @ 12:00 am EDT

Grand Canyon Star Party (North and South Rim) - June 18-25, 2011
General Information & Registration

The 21st Annual Grand Canyon Star Party (GCSP) will be held from June 18th through 25th concurrently on the North and South Rims of northern Arizona's Grand Canyon National Park. All amateur astronomers and the interested public of all ages are invited! Bring your telescope and enjoy the camaraderie. But you don't have to have a telescope to come and enjoy the beautiful Arizona night skies.

If you are an astronomer volunteering to support GCSP please follow the registration instructions below. You DO need to register your attendance request and also reserve a room or campsite and make your travel arrangements early. See Accommodation Information for details. A visit to the breathtaking Grand Canyon is an unforgettable and fabulous vacation for families, singles, and seniors. Add a week of dark Arizona skies, lots of friends, fun, and astronomy education, and you have a recipe for perfection!

If you are a visitor to the Grand Canyon National Park at the time of GCSP 2011, no action is required; just come on out any night and enjoy the wonderul nights with us under the high desert skies. Again, no registration is necessary for visitors, but astronomer participants will need to register in order to receive further instructions and entry information.
