Public Star Party

September 20, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Celebrate the arrival of our closest galaxy neighbor Andromeda in our night sky. Andromeda is a spiral galaxy that is located a mere 2.5 million light years from Earth. And for some those interested in long term planning, The Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies are expected to collide in ~4.5 billion years, merging to form a giant elliptical galaxy, or a large disc galaxy.

Any cancellations will be made here on the Dark Skies of the Wet Mountain Valley Event page by 7:30 p.m. the day of the event. Call 719-398-1284 for the latest status regarding a cancellation.

All Star Parties are free and open to the public.
