Print the full 2016 LLCC Star Party schedule.

 

Also please review the MAS Star Party Guidelines.



Unlike other MAS star party sites, the nature of the relationship between the MAS and the LLCC requirements affects access by both members and the general public. Specifically:

Other than the Northern Nights Star Fest, Events held at LLCC are not open to the public. Only MAS members and their immediate family members are authorized to attend scheduled events.

When the LLCC star party for an evening is called ”off”, the site is not available for member observing.

The site is only available when the star party is called ”on”. The site is not available for mid-week observing by members.

Check the MAS information line — (952) 467-2426 — after 3:00 pm the day of a scheduled party to confirm its status.

LLCC star parties may be called ”on” for both Friday and Saturday evenings, weather permitting. The Scheduled Events at LLCC can be found by choosing the links to the Events Calendar or the LLCC Event List below. The schedule for LLCC star parties is also published in Gemini, the Society’s newsletter .
