2022 – First Public Star Party @ Eagle Lake Observatory

2022 - First Public Star Party @ Eagle Lake Observatory

Public Star Party at the MAS Eagle Lake Observatory.

The Eagle Lake Observatory consists of the Onan Observatory, the Sylvia A. Casby Observatory and the HotSpot Classroom.

Public nights at Eagle Lake are held about every other Saturday night from March till November. Annually, we also host all day events for Astronomy Day, Fall Astronomy Day and our annual Camping with the Stars event. Additionally, we may schedule a “special event” throughout the year for a rare astronomical event such as an eclipse, conjunction, transit or meteor shower.

Public star parties are open to all, but please review the Star Party Guidelines if you have not been to a public event before.

Additional information as well as directions can be found on the Eagle Lake Observatory web page.
