Cloudland Canyon Star Party Saturday, April 6, 2024

April 6 @ 7:30 pm10:30 pm

UPDATE 4/6/24 1:45 pm: We are GO! for the first Star Party of the season at cloudland! Be sure to bring plenty of cold-weather gear – it will be chilly. Hope to see you there!

The BAS is kicking off the Star Party season at Cloudland Canyon State Park! Please join us at the Disc Golf parking area for an evening of astronomical observations with visual telescopes, Electronically-Assisted scopes and monitors, and just looking up with our eyes!

Family-friendly, accessible, and guaranteed awesome!

Note: BAS events are free to all, but Cloudland Canyon requires a $5.00 parking fee per vehicle.

Basic information for the April 6, 2024 Cloudland Canyon Star Party:

  • Sunset: 8:06 pm
  • Moon: 8% waning crescent.  No Moon for this one!
  • Set-Up: 6:30-7:30 pm
  • Guest Arrival: 7:30 pm
  • Deep Sky: Heading into Galaxy Season. Plenty of open clusters and other spring goodies!
  • Planets: Jupiter will be the best planet for now, but we will be losing it all too soon. Maybe Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks?
  • The nature of these events means they are weather-dependent. Updates posted between 1:00 and 2:00 pm.
