2015 Golden State Star Party (GSSP)
Wednesday, July 15
To Sunday, July 19 (4 nights)
The biggest and darkest skies you’re likely to encounter are there, about 6 hours drive from the south bay. Lots of great amenities, friendly people, wonderful gracious and open locals in an interesting and little-visited part of the state.
Last year’s obsidian hunting outing, led by Bob Czerwinski, was a fun highlight for me. I’d like to do it again. Lava Beds and Mount Lassen nearby are great day trips, as are the many hot springs in the area.
I really encourage checking it out and making the effort to attend. It is MUCH easier to be there than the uninitiated think.
Early (and less expensive) registration is on through March. Check it out: http://www.goldenstatestarparty.org
