Getting Organized for OSP 2015


For over 25 years, amateur astronomers and their families have been gathering at Indian Trail Spring to enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere, dark skies, low humidity and wonderful night sky observing. Located roughly an hour east of Prineville, Oregon in the Ochoco National Forest, Oregon Star Party is one of the three darkest and largest star parties in the United States. Don’t have a telescope but still want to join the fun? Join us anyway, we’re happy to share our telescope views with you!

Oregon Star Party’s mission is to provide attendees the opportunity to meet people who share an interest in astronomy, learn something new, reconnect with old friends and make new ones, and just plain have fun. We welcome and encourage families and amateur astronomers of all ages. Be sure to browse our website, and come back to register.

See you in August!
