OMSI Star Parties 2014

OMSI, Rose City Astronomers, Vancouver Sidewalk Astronomers and Oregon Parks and Recreation invite you to our free Star Parties. The Star Parties provide a great opportunity to meet other people that share your interest in astronomy, and to view the planets, moon, stars, and other celestial sights through telescopes and binoculars of all sizes. From beginners to experts, all ages are invited. The scheduled viewings will be held at both Rooster Rock State Park and Stub Stewart State Park on the same night!

No RSVP or tickets are required. Parking is $5/vehicle.

We recommend calling our hotline or visiting our website on the day of the party for possible weather-related cancellations.

Warm clothing and a flashlight with red light are recommended. Personal telescopes and binoculars are welcome.
