Location:
Chuchupate Ranger Station
34580 Lockwood Valley Rd., Frazier Park, CA 93225
Details:

Sundown is at 8pm. Come on up to Chuchupate and join us for a wonderful night.

This is our club's monthly observing outing where we hang out looking at the stars and maybe get in some astrophotography. Jupiter should still be visible and Saturn will be up high.

The public is always welcome. You don't need to bring a scope but you are welcome to. Please plan to arrive before sundown and park so that your headlights won't blind the remaining astronomers when you leave. Red flashlights only if you don't mind.

Location Info:

Located up the hill from the Chuchupate Ranger Station off Frazier Mountain Road (FS 8N04).

Notes:

Take Interstate-5 North beyond Castaic about 35 miles to Frazier Mountain Road exit. Go west, passing Frazier Park, until you come to a 4 way stop with a flashing red light. Continue straight ahead for several more miles until you come to an intersection with a Market/Liquor store on the corner of Lockwood Valley Road, turn left. Continue for about 3 miles until you see a small sign "Chuchupate Ranger Station", turn left. The speed limit on this road is 20 mph. Drive through the Ranger Camp, for about 1/8 mile until you see a sign "Trail Head" and make a right turn into the parking lot. Bring your own food and water. Dress for the weather — it can get cold even in the summer months. Cell phones do not work here, some are able to send and receive text messages and sometimes, you can connect to the WiFi connection which bleeds over from the ranger station. There are restrooms but no running water.
