The OCA has it's in-town
star parties at a new facility just off Black-Star Canyon.
For many many years the club had access to a site on a hill
near to Silverado Canyon. We
no longer have access to our old Silverado site. This has
been the case ever since the Irvine Company granted the long-term
management of the land over to the Nature Conservancy. The
good news is that we have now gained long-term (hopefully
permaneant) access to a new site hosted by the Nature Conservancy.
Please check the Calendar
section of the web site for the dates / times of these star
parties a few days prior to the actual event.
For updates on "Silverado"
Star parties please send an email to the coordinator for these
events, Steve Short.
Steve will add you onto his email distribution for news regarding
these star parties.
Please access the Black-Star
Canyon map and directions in the members area.
