The "Enchanted Skies Star Party" (ESSP) in Magdalena, New Mexico
offers a unique astronomy experience in the southwestern United States. For
one, the dark sky viewing can't be beat. And we offer a friendly and collegial
milieu by limiting registration to 125 people. Our site is in the Cibola National
Forest, just 15 minutes outside the small town of Magdalena, New Mexico.

2018-08-06: Registration Is Open
Check it out at the registration page.
We shifted the start of registration from August 1st to the 6th a few weeks ago and it looks like things should be online on time. Plan items are being checked off, permits are being had, speakers are still being lined up, and food is being arranged.
2018-07-06: The Schedule
A preliminary schedule is up on the SCHEDULE page. Speakers and events, other than the obvious observing events, are still being firmed up. The schedule will be generally the same as last year's.
The one big change for 2018 will be a $15 per person extra charge for going up to the Magdalena Ridge Observatory tour and overnight observing.
