Star Party for Children at Great Salt Bay Farm

A most important star party ahead this weekend! Plan to join us!


Saturday, October 26, 2019, 7:00pm*

Star Party at Great Salt Bay Farm

110 Belvedere Road, Damariscotta, ME 04543


* Earlier setup always welcome!

Fifteen younger students from the children’s club of the Waldoboro Public Library want you to power their stargazing at the Damariscotta River Association’s Great Salt Bay Farm. They have been waiting nearly half a year for darkness to arrive early enough for a children’s star party. When they first asked last summer, skies were not dark until far too late at night. Now, to make their dreams come true, CMAS needs a solid turnout from our astronomers.

Special thanks to CMAS astronomer Don McDaniels for arranging this event. CMAS used to host children fairly frequently, but that largely stopped when the teachers who brought them retired. Outreach was always intended to be a big part of our mission, so CMAS happily continues the tradition.

Great Salt Bay Farm is the same location that we always called “DRA” in the past. Now that the Damariscotta River Association has merged to form the larger Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust, we are adopting the new identity, to help our hosts transition their brand.

Dinner before observing at Great Salt Bay Farm has become a regular part of many a CMASian’s trip. If you’d like a bite before observing, drop by Sarah’s Cafe in Wiscasset, sometime around 5:30pm. Sarah’s is on the way for many of us, and has become a favorite haunt:
