Cathedral Gorge Star Parties

Cathedral Gorge Fall Campout and Star Party

May 11 and 12, 2018

Join the Las Vegas Astronomical Society for our Annual Cathedral Gorge Campout and Star Party, held at Cathedral Gorge State Park near Panaca, Nevada.  This star party normally is graced with two nights of clear dark skies  - a great opportunity to get out and observe some of the Wonders of the Night Sky.  All astronomers and visitors are welcome.  All participants are responsibile for their own Park Entry and Camping Fees.

See who is attending.

Only for the Fall Star Party:  In addition to the dark sky viewing, the LVAS will hold a Pot-Luck Lunch on Saturday at approximately 12:00pm.  Cooking will normally begin around 11:30am.  Participants should bring whatever main dish they wish to cook and bring a side dish to share with the group.  When you register for the event, please indicate what you are planning to bring to shere, so that others might consider not duplicating what you bring.  Immediately following the lunch, there is normally a door prize raffle that helps defray the cost of the campout and star party.  For the Fall Star Party and Campout, camping fees for LVAS members are covered by the LVAS - Non-LVAS visitors are responsible for their own Park Entry and Camping Fees.
