Mt Shasta Star Gazers Club

Mt Shasta Star Gazers was started in March 2009. Mt. Shasta is located in Siskiyou County, in far northern California, about 60 miles north of Redding, and about 60 miles south of the Oregon border, along Interstate 5. Pine-covered mountains surround our valley, with the majestic snowy volcanic peak of Mt. Shasta towering 14,162 feet high above it. The elevation of the City of Mt. Shasta is 3500 feet. We enjoy crystal clear skies and, outside the city proper, plenty of areas of very low light pollution.

The Mt Shasta Star Gazers Club promotes interest in astronomy and its related sciences, through education, fellowship among interested individuals, and through monthly meetings, free public star parties, and other events.

All are welcome to join; children (with parent or guardian), the public, amateur astronomers, educators and professional astronomers. If you are visiting Mt Shasta and would like to observe with the Club, please check the Meetings or Star Party links to see when and where the events will occur. There is no need to register or call ahead - unless you will be bringing a group larger than 3 people. If you are bringing a group larger than 3 people, we ask that you call Jim at 530-918-9540 so that we can prepare for a larger audience.
