Enchanted Skies Star Party 2011
September 28, 2011 @ 12:00 am - October 1, 2011 @ 12:00 am EDT
The Enchanted Skies Star Party, held in Socorro, New Mexico, offers a unique Southwestern Astronomy experience. With many exciting features. We continue our decade-long tradition of presenting outstanding lectures by leading professional and amateur astronomers, observing at 10,600ft, and we'll gather on Saturday night for an evening of great food, Southwestern entertainment and excellent, dark-sky observing. Socorro's dry, high-desert climate, dark skies, and friendly small-town environment provide an excellent dark sky observing experience.
Join us for dark sky observing, astronomy workshops, door prizes, lectures, and insider tours of the Very Large Array and the Magdalena Ridge Observatory.
