Star Party FAQs:

How should I dress for the Star Party? Even though the weather is getting warmer, spring in Idaho can be chilly and unpredictable so it is a good idea to dress warmly. Blankets, thick socks, and hand warmers might be a good idea.

Can I bring a flashlight? Regular white light flashlights will ruin night vision. We ask that you bring red flashlights or headlamps instead. For similar reasons, please turn off your headlights as you turn into the parking lot to avoid blinding stargazers.
