Public Star Party at Lost Dutchman State Park - Saturday, October 13, 2018

William Shaheen <wjshaheen@...>

On Saturday, October 13, we will host a regularly scheduled public Star Party at Lost Dutchman State Park from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. (Current schedule attached.)

The weather forecast looks promising for Saturday, according to the current 10-day forecast seen here:

We recommend checking later in the week and if there are any changes, a notification email will be sent.

As usual, we will be located in the Saguaro Day Use area parking lot.
Please see the Map and Directions page here:

The predicted temperature looks cool. So, dress warm, bring something to sit on (we have no seating), and bring a red covered flashlight. (We can help you with that.)
We do ask that visitors park in either the Cholla Day Use area or its Overflow Parking Lot, across the road (see link to map above) and not drive through the telescope observing area, in order to avoid the distraction of headlights. 

Parking in the Saguaro Day Use area, where telescopes will be set-up, is reserved for club members who will be hosting and bringing equipment.
State Park staff will be present to assist and direct visitors to the appropriate parking area.
Note  - Lost Dutchman State Park assesses a $7 per vehicle entrance fee, except for hosts, presenters and volunteers, unless you have an annual pass, which is good for ALL Arizona State Parks, including Boyce-Thompson Arboretum.

You can purchase an annual pass at the park, or visit for more information.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you under the stars.
