Star Party

Lewis and Clark relied on Montana’s clear evening skies to chart their course 200 years ago, and with limited light pollution and no smog, Montana is still known as one of the nation’s best star-gazing destinations. In Great Falls, the Central Montana Astronomy Society takes advantage of the state’s celestial beauty with its annual “Star Party.” Joining forces with the USDA Forest Service, the Society offers an informative look at the Montana evening sky. Large telescopes are set up for public viewing from 6 PM to midnight with astronomers on-hand to explain the unique features present in Montana’s atmosphere.

Held on Friday evenings from September through April, the following dates are the remaining scheduled “Star Parties” for the 2005/2006 season: November 11th, December 9th, January 6th, February 3rd, March 3rd, and April 7th.
