Current Moon Phase
This site is hosted and maintained by Paul Witte
It's an opportunity to get together with other individuals who share a fascination with space & the night sky. It's a chance for both experts & newcomers alike to meet under a dark sky away from city lights, pull out their telescopes and look at galaxies, nebulas, star clusters, planets, etc. If you own a telescope bring it along, otherwise just come to look through other telescopes that are present.
More experienced observers are typically more than willing to show newcomers the ropes and there is always plenty to look at. If you are thinking about buying a telescope I highly recommend first attenting a star party to get an idea of what you'll see with different apeture telescopes.
UVAA Star Parties are typically held on the saturday closest to the new moon to allow the darkest sky possible. Parties begin at dusk and go on until everyone decides to leave.
See the Message Board for upcoming Star Parties.
