The March 2017 Dark Sky Weekend features the Messier Marathon.
See the EGK Dark Site Page for more information on the Dark Site.
Members usually arrive at the Dark Site an hour or two before sundown and may remain all night. However, most people observe until 1 or 2 am, depending on the observing conditions.
“Official” Orientations may be obtained on Saturday evening during the Dark Sky Weekend. Orientations can be obtained on other nights, depending upon the experience level of the members who are present.
All people present at any time are required to sign the logbook in the warming hut.
