Hi, I am going to be heading for the Black Forest Star Party in September.  Does anyone know what time one needs to arrive on 

Friday to make sure to get a tent spot?

 

Thanks!

 

Tim

2 years ago, I arrived on Saturday and there were plenty of spots available.  My guess is that you'll be o.k. any time on Friday.

This would be a better fit in the thread in the Astronomy Clubs and Star Parties section at https://www.cloudyni...n-pennsylvania/

I was thinking the same thing...

 

Moving this topic to AC&SP for a better fit.

....but don't forget - sunset that late in September is just before 7 PM - and it can be pretty dark by 7:30 -- so don't arrive too late to set up before dark.
