Rocky Mountain Star Stare 2012

Star Party [SP]
For over two decades, astronomers from across the U.S. and around the world have been gathering each summer in the mountains west of Colorado Springs. What draws them here each year? Dark skies. Not just dark skies, but dark skies with amazing transparency. These gazers of the stars are enjoying Rocky Mountain Star Stare! Help us celebrate over 25 years at RMSS 2012!! RMSS is one of this nation's premier star parties. This year's event will be held from June 13 - June 17, 2012 and on our own private land just north of Gardner, CO. Average attendance is usually 350 astronomers. This year's theme is "Apocalypse...Not!" Registration will open 15 March 2012!! The Colorado Springs Astronomical Society sponsors this gathering of amateur astronomers. Incredible fields of stars by night are supplemented by day with workshops, children's activities, door prizes, catered meals and fun for everyone.
