Illinois Dark Skies Star Party is back!

The Sangamon Astronomical Society is the host for the 2021 Illinois Dark Sky Star Party, October 7 through 10, 2021, at Jim Edgar Panther Creek Fish and Wildlife Area located about 30 miles northwest of downtown Springfield, IL.  There will be plenty of camping space, meals to order, special speakers, the Astronomy Bowl, an Astrophotography contest and Swap meet. 

Click here to go directly to our 2021 IDSSP home page to register, see the image adorning this year’s short and long sleeve t-shirts, and hooded sweatshirts. You’ll also find the food menu, useful maps for the star party site and more. 

We hope to see all our old friends, and plenty of new ones too.
