This fall’s Mojave National Preserve Star party on Saturday November 5th, 2016 at the Black Rock Canyon group campground will also be a party celebrating the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. Come out early and get some hiking in before the potluck meal Saturday evening. The Mojave National Preserve is one of the darkest sky locations in Southern California and well worth a visit. This star party there will be a first quarter moon early in the evening until 9:45 pm so we get to see both a beautiful moon and then wonderful dark skies. If you plan on attending please RSVP either on the Event Facebook page or by Email. The photo above was taken at a prior star party. Hope to see you on Nov. 5th.
