Quote: Quote: Great pics thank u .One question , would u go again? Well, sure, but it's a long drive for me and there are some other star parties I'd like to go to as well. I've enjoyed my time here without question though. What's not to like...dark skies, vendors, meeting fellow amateurs and talking shop, and observing together. There were a number of 'shooting stars', one fireball that lit the whole area, and a lot of really nice streakers. Patrick

Quote:I have to give credit where credit is due. My last visit to WSP was in 2007. Since that time, either through the efforts of SCAS or the Girl Scouts, the facilities have been upgraded considerably. The showers and toilets did not back-up as they did during my previous visit, and there was actually hot water available for morning showers! While I'm sure that the lesser attendance had something to do with this, I'm also sure that improvements have been made. Kudos to SCAS for a great star party!
