It's a star party! Bring your telescopes, cameras and your bedding. We'll watch the sky until we can't keep our eyes open and then pass out in the school...or if you prefer your own tent, bring it. We have five couches, four air mattresses, and several other bed options in the school. We can cook out, we can have a potluck. This is a family friendly gathering for astronomers and friends. This is our first star party at the school so we anticipate meeting new people and introducing them to Chilao hospitality. Please invite everyone you know with a telescope or an interest in the sky. More details coming soon.
To reach Chilao School take Highway 2 — Angeles Crest Highway — from La Canada at the 210 freeway — 26 miles north/northeast into the forest to mile marker 49.69 and turn left into Chilao Campground. Follow red and white handmade signs that say things like «Redbird» and «Chilao School» through the campground.
