Medomak Astronomy Retreat and Symposia (MARS)

August 19 - August 23

| $700 per person (all-inclusive)
Dark skies await you at the Medomak Astronomy and Retreat Symposia.

Dark skies await you at the Medomak Astronomy and Retreat Symposia in Washington, Maine, on August 19-23.

Medomak Retreat Center in Washington, Maine, has some of the darkest skies in the Northeast, with a limiting visual magnitude of 6.3 (SQM value: 21.3 MPSAS). It's an IDA-compliant property that takes an active role in promoting the benefits of dark skies.

Now Medomak is taking its growing reputation as a stargazing mecca to the next level. This summer, August 19-23, we'll host a star party geared more toward adults and older children. You'll be able to learn about astronomy and telescopes by day — and revel under our expansive dark skies at night.

What makes this a "must-go" venue are the creature comforts. No need to bring a tent, or sleep in a sleeping bag, or eat so-so food. Medomak has comfortable, private cabins with real beds, hot showers, electricity, and amazing, chef-prepared food.

This is a stargazing opportunity you don't want to miss!
