RMSS 2014 Theme:

The Night Sky is AWESOME!

Keep checking back with us as we continue to update the website with RMSS 2014 information!

For over two decades, astronomers from across the U.S. and around the world have been gathering each summer in the mountains west of Colorado Springs. What draws them here each year? Dark skies. Not just dark skies, but dark skies with amazing transparency. These gazers of the stars are enjoying Rocky Mountain Star Stare!

Come celebrate 26 years of RMSS with us!

Held in June or early July, RMSS is one of this nation's premier star parties. This year's event will be held from June 25 - June 29, 2014 on our own private land just north of Gardner, CO. Average attendance is usually 300 astronomers.

The Colorado Springs Astronomical Society sponsors this gathering of amateur astronomers. Incredible fields of stars by night are supplemented by day with workshops, children's activities, door prizes, catered meals and fun for everyone.
