It's all over...until next year.

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.

Members of the Magdalena Astronomical Society will begin planning the 2019 ESSP in a few months.

2018-10-15: The sun has set on another ESSP. Everyone seemed to have a pretty good time, despite the weather. Tuesday night was very good, Wednesday pretty good, but the rest of the week was kinda cloudy. We'll get some pictures gathered up and on the site in the coming weeks. A big thanks to everyone that dropped by and everyone that helped out.

2018-10-08: Here is a newsletter for this year's ESSP event, Lyceum, Magdalena Astronomical Society, and FOAH (Friends On A Hill) Observatory happenings! It's been kind of a busy year around here!
