Calling All Astronomers!

Heart of Virginia Fall Star Party

November 18 – 20

 

The Heart of Virginia Scout Reservation in Goochland County is once again hosting a Fall Star Party! All area astronomers are invited to attend. The Richmond Astronomical Society will be there and will be supplying refreshments for the event. We hope that lots of our fellow astronomers from the region will join us.

The reservation has a dark sky, convenient access from I-64, wide open space, excellent amenities including a nearby dining hall where RAS will be providing refreshments for the entire event (and where cold astronomers can warm up), along with plenty of room to camp near your telescope, full restroom facilities w/showers and heated lodging.

It’s hard to find a better site that is as convenient and has a dark sky. We hope that a lot of astronomy enthusiasts will attend and show their support so that the Scout Reservation can continue hosting this event. The fun begins Friday afternoon November 18 at 4:00 PM with an astronomy club social and runs through noon on Sunday, November 20.

Cost of the event is only $15 which includes camping and refreshments. Heated bunkroom lodging is available for an additional $6 per person.

Details are at the link below. Don’t miss it – this should be a great event!
