Star Parties

Public Star Parties at Eagle Lake Observatory allow MAS members to share our passion of the night sky with the public. Public nights at Eagle Lake are held every other Saturday night March through November.

The Sky is the Limit

Join a Star Party

Unless otherwise noted, all Eagle Lake Observatory public star parties are “all weather” events. Even if it is cloudy, someone will be there to show a video, give a presentation, give a tour of the observatory, or answer astronomy questions. However, there may be a need to cancel due to hazardous weather conditions, such as severe thunderstorm, tornados, and/or snow storms. If any of these conditions are threatening, check the MAS Forum after 4 p.m. the day of the event for cancellation notices.

Know Before You Go

Review the Public Event Rules before attending MAS events – these rules supersede other information you may find elsewhere on the website. Please also take a few moments to review the Star Party Guidelines.
