Public Star Party: The Milky Way

  • Smokey Jack Observatory 100 South Adams Boulevard Westcliffe, CO, 81252 United States (map)

The Milky Way is nothing to snicker at. Immense clouds of gas and dust that are home to star nurseries are set against a backdrop of billions and billions of stars. Come see a sight that, sadly, is now visible only in places like the Wet Mountain Valley because of light pollution in the more populated areas of the nation. Saturn and Mars are also positioned for maximum viewing. Back-up date is Saturday, September 15.

All Star Parties are free and open to the public.
