The OAS hosts several  star parties every year.  During the summer, around the new moon, we have our star party up at Hurricane Ridge in the heart of the Olympic Mountains.  This is a one night event in an extremely dark site over looking Mount Olympus and the neighboring mountains.  The southern skies are excellent not to mention the awesome beauty of the mountains!  This is a free star party, except for the entrance fee to the Olympic National Park.

Our semi-annual 4 night event is our Camp Delany Star Party hosted in the beautiful Sun Lakes State Park at their environmental learning center.  This party occurs in the spring and the fall.  There is a fee to attend but all your meals are provided and bunkhouses are available as well as hot showers!  This dark site is in Eastern Washington and the views are endless. It is quite the friendly, family oriented affair! Come and join us for loads of fun!

  1. You are most welcome to join us at the Ridge! We would love to meet you. Hope to see you

    You can arrive anytime. We usually set up around 7:30ish. Yeah, we have had people ask what we are going to shoot out of “that thing”! Hope to see you there.


  2. Thank you! What time should we arrive? We’ll likely be bringing an Orion Sky Quest XT12. My sister laughs that it’s our personal cannon.

  3. Hi, my husband and I are interested in joining the club but would like to come visit before we commit. Could we come to the next Hurricane Ridge Star Party and bring our two scopes before we pay membership dues just to check it out and see if OAS will be the place we want to be?
