Illinois Dark Skies Star Party 2020

We are still on for the Illinois Dark Skies Star Party

Our star party site is secured for the IDSSP, and we hope you will join us.

The very first IDSSP was held in late September in 2002.

This year is our 19th annual event, and we are working to make it a great event.

We are obviously concerned about the current healthcare situation in the United States, but we are optimistic the severity of the coronavirus pandemic is a challenge we will conquer; that our country and the rest of the world will beat it back.

One of the reasons for the success of the IDSSP is the great people, now our good friends, who attend. We want you to stay safe and be well. 

More details will be coming

We look forward to seeing you in September!
