Mount Magazine Star Party

October 29, 2010 @ 12:00 am - October 31, 2010 @ 12:00 am

The Arkansas River Valley Stargazers club of Russellville, Arkansas is planning a star party Friday and Saturday nights, Oct. 29 and 30, 2010.
The star party will be held atop Mount Magazine, south of Paris, Arkansas, at the horse camp / quarry area at the east end of the mountain. Here is a link to a map of Mount Magazine State Park:

This location is completely primitive with no facilities, but a good, clear view of the sky. This means there are no rest rooms or running water, but we will provide a port-a-potty.

This will be a no-frills star party with no entrance fee or vendors, but we will try to have a lecturer or two. Right now we have one lecturer scheduled from the International Dark Sky Association.

More information can be had by contacting P.T. Barnum at ptbarnum2008@hotmail.com or Ken Zelnick at kenneth_zelnick@yahoo.com.
