The 35th annual Mt. Kobau Star Party will begin at dusk August 4, 2018 and will end at dawn August 12, 2018
2016 Contests & Observing Program
Dark sky observing is our raison d'être on the mountaintop, but we're not above a little friendly competition. Entry forms for all the photography contests will be available at the desk but you may download a pdf version of the Daylight Photos form by clicking on links on this page
In addition to the several annual contests noted above, MKSP is pleased to present observing suggestions. The observing program suggestions are not competitions in the true sense of the word but rather are intended to provide the astronomer with a sense of accomplishment. Levels of experience range from absolute beginner to seasoned amateur. Refer to the lists below for details.
Completed lists will be rewarded with a pin and your name will be posted in the History section on the MKSP website for all to see. To obtain a pin, bring your completed form to the registration desk during hours of operation.
You will find all the lists on the website menu or by clicking on the links below. Choose the list or lists you would like to try. You may download a copy then print or you may just print the pdf file(s) directly. Don't forget to bring printed copies for your use at the star party.
