VicSouth Desert Spring Star Party
The VicSouth Desert Spring Star Party is an annual weekend of astronomy held in addition to the Dark Sky AstroCamps in western Victoria (Australia) during the mild weather of spring - when the skies in the region are generally clear at night. VicSouth is jointly hosted by the Astronomical Society of Victoria and the Astronomical Society of South Australia, and offers a great weekend of social and astronomical activity as well as some nice observing targets.
The 2012 VicSouth Desert Spring Star Party will be held between 12 - 14 October at the Little Desert Nature Lodge, 16km south of the town of Nhill - about halfway between Adelaide and Melbourne.
VicSouth will proceed regardless of weather.
