Rocky Mountain Star Stare (RMSS) is an annual star party sponsored by the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society (CSASTRO.ORG). Held every summer, RMSS has been one of the nation’s premier star parties for the last 30 years. Located on 35 acres of land, RMSS’s “Starry Meadows” is conveniently located just over two hours southwest of Colorado Springs (just outside of Gardner, CO), between the Sangre de Cristo and Wet mountain ranges, at an altitude of 7,612 feet above sea level. RMSS annually plays host to 350+ amateur and professional astronomers, family and friends.

We offer a truly amazing experience for individuals of all ages and all skill levels (beginners to experts) who are looking for an educational, astronomical related, outdoor activity in a pristine outdoor Colorado environment.

Enjoy National-level speakers, outdoor activities, children’s events, camping among friends, and appreciate the clear, dark skies of Colorado.
