Cherry Grove Virgo Venture Star Party for FRIDAY MAY 3 is CANCELLED. The May 4 Alternative is now the plan. See the forum for updates.
The MAS ”Virgo Venture” is an star party dedicated to observing many of the brighter galaxies in the Virgo Cluster. As with all Cherry Grove events, the Virgo Venture is held only if the skies are clear and will be CANCELLED IF CLOUDY.
Additional information and finder charts can be found on the MAS website at HERE
Cherry Grove Star Parties are held on Friday nights, with Saturday reserved as the backup night if Friday is cloudy.
Star parties are no longer called “on” or “off”. Those planning on attending are to make their best judgement as to sky conditions and whether to attend or not. Generally however, star parties are cancelled if cloudy.
Be sure to check the MAS Discussion Forums if conditions are questionable to see if others are planning on attending.
