Dark Skies Are Getting Noticed!

Check out this news article about how a California company plans to setup a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) camp near the site of the Staunton River Star Party! The article specifically mentions that the CEO noted that the community is located in a part of the country deemed as having a dark skies designation. Thanks to everyone who has attended the star party and especially the staff at the park for keeping the skies dark!

Spring Star Party - March 22-26

Please join us for some of the best observing in the mid-Atlantic! As most of you know, the park staff are the best hosts, but it's the attendees that make the star party special! Come join your fellow enthusiasts for a week of relaxation, an exchange of knowledge, perhaps some new equipment for your collection, and of course great observing!
