SJAA Yosemite Public Star Party 2005

Jim Van Nuland


The annual SJAA Yosemite star party will be held on August 5 and 6, 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 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 , or phone 408-371-1307 10 am to 10 pm. Priority is given to SJAA members. The August new moon is on August 4, so this is an ideal date.
