Come join us for the 2019 All Arizona Star Party, presented by the East Valley Astronomy Club. Held October 25 & 26 at the Hovatter abandoned airstrip site, Exit 53 Hovatter Rd., about 90 miles west of Phoenix. 

 

Friday     5.00 pm, potluck dinner.

Saturday 4.00 pm, non alcoholic beverages from around the world.

               4.30 pm, raffle drawing w/ some great prizes. $1.00 each, or 6 for $5.00.

               5.00 pm, great taco dinner for $5.00 {not del taco or taco bell}.

               9.00 pm, coffee and snackies.

 

Bortle 2 skies, no light domes, sky brightness is 21.89 to 21.99. Remember this is open desert, bring your own water, pack it in, pack it out.

We are hoping for nice weather at the end of October, a little warm during the day, but great at night. Portable toilets will be provided.

 

We look forward to seeing you there.

Thanx, everyone at EVAC
