The 30th Annual Winter Star PartyFebruary 23 - March 2, 2014
Come to the warm, sunny Florida Keys for your complete latitude adjustment. Spend a winter vacation under dark, steady skies rubbing elbows with fellow astronomers and astro-imagers looking out over the ocean.Whether this is your very first Winter Star Party or your 30th, please plan to join us this coming February for a wonderful time stargazing as the gentle waves of the ocean lap at your toes. During the day, there is so much to do. The event starts at Noon on Sunday, February 23, and the camp must be vacated by 10 a.m. Sunday, March 2. Accommodation are rustic at Camp Wesumkee Girl Scout Camp located on Scout Key between Marathon and Big Pine Key. We have an on-site caterer, Micki's providing delicious meals and snacks. The camp has both men and women's bathhouses, and an air-conditioned room where talks are held during the day. If you prefer more amenities, there are many motels. Miami and Key West International Airports are within 1 - 2 hours driving distance from the camp. Be sure to book early, as this is the height of the season for the Keys.
