The 2021 Orange Blossom Special International Star Party has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus. We will be having a club members only New Moon Super Weekend between February 10th and February 14th.
Registration: Registration will not be required. Please make sure all persons attending with you are showing no signs of Coronavirus, wear a facemask, and maintain social distancing.
Accommodations: The clubhouse will not be open. Club members will be allowed to set up in any location, on the viewing field, they choose on a first-come, first-served basis. The normal New Moon weekend rates will be collected by a club representative. It's $10/night with electric and $5/night without. A club representative will also be taking temperatures each day as an added precaution. Again, the February New Moon Weekend is for St. Petersburg Astronomy Club members only.

Star Party Apparel: We would like to take a moment to recognize Doug Sliman, who was the winner for the 2021 OBS logo design. We instituted a new process involving the club membership and a club vote for a logo design. We will not be taking orders for the t-shirt, but Doug has provided us with a link to order a shirt for those who want this ultra-cool design! T-Shirts must be ordered by January 4th.
