CCAS Members are invited to a private star party just for CCAS members at an 80-acre ranch in Templeton, owned by retired professor Peter Huber (who is also an amateur astronomer).

The ranch is an eco-friendly retreat center available to CCAS free of charge on select nights. The site is very dark, has 360-degree visibility and no annoying lights (like at KOA). There are two possible observing sites on the property that have already been previewed by Lee Coombs, Tom Frey, and Jim Carlisle this month (who all gave the thumbs-up!), so bring your scope and drive right up!

What you need to do: Bring a snack to share and arrive early so you can meet Peter and look around before it gets too dark. Just send us an email if you plan to attend so we know to look for you.
