Starry, starry night

It's a party too

Registration is open for the 18th Annual Connecticut Star Party to be held by the Astronomical Society of New Haven Sept. 26-28, 2008 at the society’s dark sky location in Ashford.
CSP is family oriented, organizers said and daytime activities for the young (and young at heart) include free planetarium shows, a solar system walk, door prizes for children, and a raffle. The nights offer some of the darkest skies in southern New England, said organizers, who ask that participants remember to bring telescopes.
Guest speakers are Lowell Observatory Docent Rich Bohner, Astroimager Ruben Kier, and Matthew Marulla of
Registration closes Sept. 15, and is limited to 300 people. Meal plan and bunk arrangements are available. CSP is the society’s annual, and only, fund raiser. For registration information, visit
