I will certainly be there, sounds like we are set up for a fun = time. I am going to try and get out of town early, so I will meet ya = there. Map to get there follows this message, it is the flyer for the = big star party in March, but he place is the same. It is about 2 hours = from Phoenix, so try and leave early enough to get there in twilight. Steve Coe =20 Sentinel-Schwaar Star Gaze Sat. March 9, 2002 =20 The Sentinel-Schwaar Star Gaze is a chance for astronomers to meet at an = Arizona dark sky site. It is sponsored by the Deep Sky Group of the = Saguaro Astronomy Club in memory of Pierre Schwaar. There is no = registration and no fee to attend, just show up and enjoy the night sky. = In the past, folks have arrived on Friday, for two nights of observing. = There are no facilities at the site, it is just a large flat area in = the middle of the desert southwest. It gets both hot and cold, = depending on the whim of the weather, so bring cool water and warm = clothes. Please be courteous about white light, many observers and = photographers are going after very dim objects. =20 To get to the site, drive to Gila Bend, AZ. and get on the I-8 freeway = going west toward Yuma. The Sentinel exit is about 30 miles west from = Gila Bend. Take the exit and go south, under the freeway and across the = railroad tracks. Go straight south on the dirt road and drive 2 miles = until you see a large, flat area of the desert to your left, white rocks = mark the site. It is before a cattle guard.
