From White Mountain Research Station
year, we rent time up at the Barcroft High Altitude Research Station
in the White Mountains to provide our members with an opportunity
to gain access to "research-grade" night skies. Well,
they have begun publishing their own newsletters, and you can
view them here.
It's full of info about the three facilities they make available,
one of which is Barcroft, and it's chock-full of interesting stuff
about these sites. Check it out!
EAS partners with East Bay schools,
libraries, Scouting groups, and S.T.E.M organizers for evening star
parties and other Outreach events. Our experienced astronomy volunteers
bring out their telescopes and other equipment, sharing close-up
views of planets, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies. We seek to
provide a unique and inspiring experience of the night sky!
If your organization is interested in scheduling an Outreach event,
or you're an EAS member who would like to get involved, contact
