So you might ask... What's a Starry Hill Star Party?

Imagine a warm August evening with the Milky Way glowing above the dome at Starry Hill as kids and adults use telescopes outside to explore the treasures of the night sky. With the help of teenaged Star Guides, they find star clusters, nebulas, galaxies and more. Perhaps they spot Jupiter with its many moons or Saturn with its grand rings. Shooting stars are seen streaking by. Some guests are inside the observatory engaged in astrophotography of a distant galaxy or exploding star. This describes a Starry Hill Star Party!
