August 8th, 9th & 10th, 2013

The Table Mountain Star Party is an annual gathering of people interested in astronomy and its many related topics. Most people attending are amateur astronomers who enjoy the great viewing which the mountain provides, however, anyone with an interest or curiosity is welcome to register and enjoy the experience. Programming is provided for everyone from the seasoned astronomer to the beginning novice. We also provide well organized, fun and educational programming for the student.

Each year our event is held in July or August (usually July) depending on the weather, Forest Service requirements, and the phase of the moon.

Make your plans to attend and enjoy this event with hundreds of great telescopes and related equipment. Bring your telescope, or if you don't have one, most astronomers are happy to share the view and show off their equipment.

We offer speakers, workshops, seminars, a swap meet, a young astronomer program, door prize drawings for both students and adults, and much more to enrich your experience. During the day, in addition to astronomical programming, there are beautiful areas to hike and explore.

Browse through the Web site for more detailed information, historical reports for past years, maps, the registration form, and e-mail addresses of TMSPA staff members who can answer additional questions. Revisit us often and watch for changes and updates.

We hope to see you on the mountain!
