The Astronomical Society of Nevada works with communities all over Nevada to introduce residence and visitors to the spectacular night skies of Northern Nevada.
What many might not know is that in Genoa, the last Friday of every month, they invite the public to a Star party that is held at The River Fork Ranch on Genoa Lane. This open invitation is run by expert volunteers and starts at dusk or 6:30 pm whichever is later during the season.

Free Family events such as this one are one of the true treasures of living in a community in The Carson Valley region. Our night sky is often enjoyed around a fire pit in the back yard or camp fire on the family outing. The Astronomical Society of Nevada provides us a closer look at the stars, planets and wonders of space through the eye of a telescope and the knowledge of local experts that can tell us what we are looking at and for on our next evening out.
