The Astronomy Section of the Rochester Academy of Science (ASRAS) will hold the 12th annual RocheStar Fest on July 17th to July 18th. This weekend-long event features astronomy, lectures, demonstrations, and camping at ASRAS’s Ionia, NY observing grounds. A picnic dinner will be held on Saturday. Door prizes and a silent auction add to the fun. Proceeds benefit ASRAS, a non-profit organization devoted to education and public outreach in the fields of astronomy and space sciences. Camping arrangements are available at no charge, tents and small campers permitted. These are primitive camping sites; no electric or water hookups, or showers are available. No pets or ground fires are allowed.
