Rules for Star Parties at Chuchupate 

We want everyone who attends the star party to have an enjoyable evening. Please obey these rules. They are for everyone's benefit and safety.

  • Don't use white lights. Use red lights sparingly. If for some reason you MUST use a white light, shout out a warning.
  • Turn down the brightness of your phone, tablet, or other electronic device. These can be almost as bright as a flashlight.
  • Make sure your car doesn't violate the above. Backup lights and even interior lights can ruin someone's night vision. If you're planning to leave early, park so as to be able to leave without using your lights.
  • There is no water but there are restrooms. Also, cell phone coverage may not exist.
  • Don't litter (that includes leaving trash in the restrooms). If you pack it in, you pack it out! There are no trash bins here.
  • Never touch anyone else's equipment without permission. But don't be afraid to ask.¬†
  • Watch your step (but don't use a flashlight). Be especially careful of wires on the ground. Some scopes require power and some folks use their car's battery. If your scope requires power try to make the wires as safe as possible.
  • Talking -- avoid loud talking and boisterous behavior. Astronomy is a quiet, peaceful activity.
  • Children and pets. Some folks welcome them, others don't. If you do bring them make sure that they are quiet, careful and don't run around. Please clean up after them.
  • Music. Please, if you do play music keep it very low as not to disturb anyone.
