Medomak Astronomy Retreat and Symposia (MARS)

August 19, 2014 - August 23, 2014

Dark skies await you at the Medomak Astronomy and Retreat Symposia.
Dark skies await you at the Medomak Astronomy and Retreat Symposia in Washington, Maine, on August 19-23.

Medomak Retreat Center in Washington, Maine, has some of the darkest skies in the Northeast, with a limiting visual magnitude of 6.3 (SQM value: 21.3 MPSAS). It's an IDA-compliant property that takes an active role in promoting the benefits of dark skies.

Now Medomak is taking its growing reputation as a stargazing mecca to the next level. This summer, August 19-23, we'll host a star party geared more toward adults and older children. You'll be able to learn about astronomy and telescopes by day — and revel under our expansive dark skies at night.

What makes this a "must-go" venue are the creature comforts. No need to bring a tent, or sleep in a sleeping bag, or eat so-so food. Medomak has comfortable, private cabins with real beds, hot showers, electricity, and amazing, chef-prepared food.

This is a stargazing opportunity you don't want to miss!
