Star Party Overview
We have a spring star party called the Star Gaze usually in late April or early May at Trap Pond State Park depending on the timing of the new Moon. Please see the Star Gaze for more information.
Informal Moonthly Start Parties
There are also monthly informal star parties at Trap Pond which will be announced in the events. Last year the moon was near the beginning of the month. This year the New Moon drifts back to the end of most months.
