Night Under the Stars at the Cosmic Campground
On October 13th and 14th, RRAS Club President Laurie Wells was joined by RRAS members Melanie Templet, Darin Templet, Jay Wells, and Mike White for two nights of clear skies at the Cosmic Campground. The site is located in the Gila Mountains, north of Silver City. The sky conditions were excellent, and the site truly rates as a premium dark site. The RRAS is planning future trips to the site, so keep in touch for upcoming dates.
