A few reminders to ensure a safe and enjoyable star party for all attendees:
  • Dress warmly. Layers are encouraged.
  • Wear comfortable shoes.
  • Minimize flashlight use. Use a red night vision flashlight or cover a standard flashlight with red cellophane (volunteers will provide cellophane if needed).
  • Listen to advice and instructions. Park rangers and event volunteers are on hand to help everyone enjoy their experience. 
  • Ask questions. Park rangers, astronomers, and volunteers will all be prepared to answer your questions.
  • Watch your step. Every effort will be made to ensure your safety but it will be very dark. Use your red night vision flashlight and don't hesitate to ask for assistance.
  • Be mindful of others. There may be waiting lines at various times. Please be patient.
  • No pets.
  • Cadillac Mountain Star Party: Folding chairs and pets are not permitted at the Star Party. Cadillac Mountain Summit Road will be closed to bicyclists and pedestrians during the event to keep the shuttles running on time and everyone as safe as possible.  Buses will be heated (if needed) and the Summit Center gift shop and restrooms at the top of Cadillac Mountain will be open during the event.
