Star Parties allow you to see distant stars and galaxies with your own eyes, through telescopes provided by Bates Astronomy Club and local astronomy clubs.  These telescopic views give visitors a greater appreciation of the capabilities of artists to capture and convey subtle details in these subjects, as seen in the Starstruck exhibition.

Weather permitting, Star Party scheduled for October 6.

Weather permitting, Other Star Parties are scheduled for the following dates:
October 22
October 27
November 3

The star party will be held at the Lafayette Street Field, number 81 on the Bates Map
