Star Party

Star Party, Saturday Sept 3rd!
Southern Oregon Skywatchers will hold a Star Party at the summer observing site on Upper Shale City Road, weather permitting. Currently, Saturday night shows as partly cloudy, so please check the forecast before you go! Also, check for smoke impact from the Gap Fire. Plan to arrive around dusk. You don't need to be a member to attend, and you don't need a telescope - all are welcome. We hope to see you there.
The observing site is at the rock quarry on Upper Shale City Road , off Dead Indian Memorial Rd east of Ashland.
