The 35th annual Mt. Kobau Star Party will begin at dusk August 4, 2018 and will end at dawn August 12, 2018
Please remember that Environment Canada’s forecast for Osoyoos is intended for the populated area in the valley, not the Kobau summit. Wildfire effects on the star party are very difficult to predict, even in the short term. Distant wildfires can compromise observing if high altitude smoke is blown towards the star party site, and nearby fires can have a negligible effect if smoke blows in the opposite direction.
