Grand Canyon Star Party 2010 – South Rim

June 5, 2010 @ 12:00 am - June 12, 2010 @ 12:00 am

The 2010 Grand Canyon Star Party (GCSP) will be held the nights of June 5 through 12 in northern Arizona's Grand Canyon National Park. GCSP is an annual collaboration between the National Park Service and astronomers from North America, and sometimes beyond, to bring astronomy outreach to Park visitors. Location will be concurrently at Yavapai Observing Station on the South Rim, with a North Rim segment as well.
Amateur astronomers with a telescope and love of the sky to share, and the interested public of all ages, are invited to experience the beautiful Arizona nights in an exploration of the heavenly Grand Canyon skies. Not an astronomer? Drop in for an unforgettable and fabulous vacation for families, singles, and seniors. Visitors are free to come to the Star Party at any time during the event, while astronomers will need to use the contact information below for further information.
