SJAA Yosemite Public Star Party 2006

Jim Van Nuland


The annual SJAA Yosemite star party will be held on July 21 and 22, at Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park. Up to 30 people will be given free admission and camping, in exchange for two public events on Friday and Saturday evenings. The rest of the time we can be tourists.

We are expected to have at least one scope per two people, and to attend both star parties.

The camping is rough by modern standards: no dining room, no showers, no hot water. Read about it on my Yosemite page at , or contact me with questions. If you can tolerate the limitations, tell me the number of people you’ll have, and the number of scopes that will be set up for the public. E-mail me at, or phone 408-371-1307 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Priority is given to SJAA members.

The new moon is on July 23, so this is an ideal date.
