Rocky Mountain Star Stare
June 29, 2011 @ 12:00 am - July 3, 2011 @ 12:00 am EDT
The Premiere Star Party in the Rocky Mountains
For over two decades, astronomers from across the U.S. and around the world have been gathering each summer in the mountains west of Colorado Springs. What draws them here each year? Dark skies. Not just dark skies, but dark skies with amazing transparency. These gazers of the stars are enjoying Rocky Mountain Star Stare! Help us celebrate 25 years at RMSS 2011!!
The Colorado Springs Astronomical Society, whose website is found at http://www.csastro.org, sponsors this gathering of amateur astronomers. Incredible fields of stars by night are supplemented by day with workshops, children's activities, door prizes, catered meals and fun for everyone.
