Merritt Star Quest

August 24, 2019 - August 31, 2019

Each year the Merritt Astronomical Society hosts a large and roomy Star Party! If you're into camping and doing "all nighter's" under a canopy of stars, observing deep sky objects and the occasional planet then this event is right up your alley! The event runs for a period of 8 days and 8 nights! Making it possible for those who can't make it for the entire event to at least have the weekends. Also should one weekend suffer bad weather, then the second or following weekend will hopefully take up the slack. But you're a hearty observer like so many others at this event then you're in good company! When the weather is spot on, it's really spectacular! Some have even considered the Milky Way as "Light Pollution!" So if you want to see the stars as Galileo saw them then this site and event is the place to be!

Cost: Single day, all week, and family fees are available
