This fall’s Mojave National Preserve Star party is on Saturday November 11th, 2017. Make a weekend of it and come out earlier in the day to get some hiking in before the potluck meal Saturday evening. This is a good location for seeing desert tortoises, hares and there’s usually a few cows hanging around as well!
The Mojave National Preserve is one of the darkest sky locations in Southern California and well worth a visit and we bring a good selection of telescopes to the star party.
This star party there will be a third quarter moon but it will not affect our dark skies as it doesn’t rise until 12:44 am. If you plan on attending please RSVP either on the Event Facebook page or by Email. The photo above was taken at the Spring 2017 star party. Hope to see you there.
