years of Amateur Astronomy on the Delmarva Peninsula
The Stargazers were formed in 1993 for the purposes of viewing the heavens
and promoting a general interest in astronomy.
We gather monthly at our dark sky sites for camaraderie and to just gaze at the stars

A viewing session at Trap Pond State Park, DE
for members of the Delmarva Stargazers
The Delmarva Stargazers is have a viewing session at Trap Pond State Park on July 25th and 26st.
This will be your first opportunity to view from our new potential Star Party site!
Any current member of the Stargazers can view at Cypress Point field either one night or both nights at no entrance cost to the park. The Club will pay for your entrance cost.
We have an agreement with the Park that you can view and, if you want, you can sleep by your scope for that weekend. If you plan just to view one night and are too tired to go home,
you can just camp by your scope. There is a restroom and drinking water nearby but there is no electricity on the viewing field. If you plan to stay both nights, I would suggest that
you obtain a campsite at the Park’s camp ground at a cost to you of only $26 per night if you’re a Delaware resident. The out of Sate cost is not that much more. You will have electricity
and showers at the camp ground. The Park is good place to camp and very scenic!!
On Saturday night (26Th) Dr Harmonica and Rockett 88 (blues and rock & roll) will be playing at the Park’s Nature Center in the early evening.

If you plan to attend the event, please email your intent to me (Lyle Jones) by July 23 (worm1647@comcast.net). We need to have the names of the Stargazer, as well as an accurate count
of the number of participants. Once I have received your email; I will send you directions to the viewing field off Cypress Point.If you have not camped at Trap Pond State Park before,
take this opportunity to do so.The skies are darker than Tuckahoe State Park Equestrian Center!!
