Please join us, the Basin and Range Dark Sky Cooperative, the Great Basin Observatory and other “luminaries” for a virtually stunning Star Party on Saturday, September 5 from 8 – 9:30 PM.
See LIVE images of star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, planets, and other celestial objects from telescope operators in Nevada and neighboring Oregon. Star Party-goers will learn to use a planisphere, computer software and apps, and how to star hop!
Dark skies and the celestial magic they reveal are threatened by the ever-increasing brightening of our living spaces on Planet Earth. So don’t miss this opportunity to gain new appreciation for what we can’t typically see when we’re surrounded by artificial light and what we can all do to help preserve the magnificent dark skies of wild, wide open Nevada.
