Markleeville . August 19, 2023 Sunset 7:51 Moon set 9:34 THIS IS A DARK SKY AREA!
I have a special place for small town community events. The whole town comes out to take a peep through our telescopes. There is Free camping is available under the trees Friday and Saturday nights. Saturday is a free dinner at the airport. The “airport” is an abandoned landing strip. This makes it an idea site to setup our telescope. Last time we were there, about 25 telescopes were setup. This year I am hoping for 10 or more.
Markleeville is a fishing town. Bring your fishing equipment or rent from ANY retail store. Grover Hot Springs is nearby. Take an afternoon to relax and refresh before the star party. Astro photographers love this place for its dark night. Hay, new moon too!
