The "Enchanted Skies Star Party" (ESSP) in Magdalena, New Mexico offers a unique astronomy experience in the southwestern United States. For one, the dark sky viewing can't be beat. And we offer a friendly and collegial milieu by limiting registration to 125 people. Our site is in the Cibola National Forest, just 15 minutes outside the small town of Magdalena, New Mexico.
Members of the Magdalena Astronomical Society are now busy planning the 25th ESSP for October 2018. The full 5-day/night program is designed for the serious amateur astronomer, and will again include the popular VIP tours of the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array and the Magdalena Ridge Observatory and Interferometer. In addition, there will guided tours and lectures at Magdalena's Astronomical Lyceum, an unusual museum/workshop/library facility that has antique telescopes!
