The 6th Annual "Monatana Starwatch" will be held this summer on private property owned by BSAC club member Joe Witherspoon. Joe's property is located southeast of the town of Twin Bridges, Montana. The observing site sits at an elevation of 5,330 feet and has awesome views from the southeast clear around to the northeast.

This image, by Google Earth, was taken (coincidentally) during the August weekend of the 2013 Montana Starwatch.
In it, you can actually see the meeting tent (with the purple roof) as well as some of the participants' RVs and scopes.
The dates for this year's event will be firmed up soon, so visit our Meetings and Events Calendar often to confirm the date.
