The Grand Canyon Star Party

1st March 2013 Print
Grand Canyon

Want to see stars?  Then head to the Grand Canyon National Park this June for the Grand Canyon Star Party, an annual fun event where amateur astronomers share their knowledge – and telescopes – with all who are interested in the sky at night.

The Grand Canyon is one of the best night sky observing sites in the US because it has some of the darkest skies and cleanest air in the country. Visitors will have the opportunity to view Saturn, along with a vast assortment of star clusters and galaxies at night - plus the Sun and Mercury by day - at this eight-day event which takes place between 8-15 June.

US specialist, Bon Voyage, is featuring seven-night Arizona fly-drive holidays – incorporating two nights at the Grand Canyon during ‘Party’ time, two nights at Death Valley National Park– the largest dark sky park in the world – and two nights in Phoenix  – from £1295 per person.

This twin share price, applicable through June, includes return flights from Heathrow, Glasgow or Manchester, mid-size car hire, rustic inn and hotel accommodation and bespoke driving instructions.
