Oregon Star Party
August 11, 2015 - August 16, 2015
Oregon Star Party’s planning committee is pleased to announce that the 28th annual Oregon Star Party will take place from August 11 through 16, 2015 at Indian Trail Spring in the Ochoco National Forest. Well known for its dark skies, Oregon Star Party is one of the largest annual star parties in the United States.
For 2015, the Oregon Star Party will be during the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower!
This year's daily activities schedule will be filled with a range of activities from speaker’s presentations, youth activities, mentoring for youth and adults, a swap meet, and more. The telescope park will return this year to expand the nightly mentoring program. The night telescope walkabout will also be included in this year's activities schedule. Highlights for this year's star party will include the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower!
Hailing from Hood River, OR, Four and Twenty Blackbirds will again be offering both a la carte meals and pre-sold dinners this year. The ever-popular Shawna’s Espresso Blast and other amenities will return to help make camping in Eastern Oregon more comfortable.
Oregon Star Party's mission is to provide attendees the opportunity to meet people who share an interest in astronomy, learn something new, reconnect with old friends and make new ones, and just plain have fun. We welcome and encourage families and amateur astronomers of all ages.
