Attention Astronomers!
Where Will You Be June 21st through June 25th, 2017?
Join Us At Rocky Mountain Star Stare!

Welcome to


June 21st - June 25th, 2017

Gardner, Colorado

Come Celebrate

31 Years of RMSS With Us!


The place to be in 2017 from June 21st through June 25th will be at Starry Meadows in Gardner, Colorado, where you're welcome to come out and join the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society in celebrating the most phenomenal night skies in the west!

For over two decades, astronomers from across the U.S. and around the world have been gathering each summer in the mountains west of Colorado Springs. What draws them here each year? Dark skies. Not just dark skies, but dark skies with amazing transparency. These gazers of the stars are enjoying Rocky Mountain Star Stare!

Held in June or early July, RMSS is one of this nation's premier star parties. Next year's event will be held from June 21 - June 25 on our own private land just north of Gardner, CO.

Plan Ahead for Next Year ... or the Year After ... or the Year After!
