The ASN supports Lassen National Park's Dark Sky Festival each August. It is our best outreach event of the year. Other public organizations including NASA will also participate. Telescope viewing (ASN), demonstrations and lectures are available on Friday and Saturday (August 2 and 3, 2019).

ASN members usually stay at the Summit Lake campground (7,000') and observe at the Bumpass Hell parking lot (8,200'), which has an amazing view. There will be a lot of people! Often there are lines at our telescopes.

You can read about the DSF on the park's website.
