  1. Dear Readers:

    The annual ESSP will not run in 2020 as it has in recent years near Magdalena, New Mexico, because of the ongoing health restrictions. A number of the members of the Magdalena Astronomical Society, however, will enjoy primitive camping and personal observing at a large private site on the nights of October 16 and 17 at the Top of the World subdivision in Pie Town, 60 miles west of Magdalena. Our astronomical friends in the Pie Town area have a growing astronomy community there that balances our local efforts along the New Mexico “Route 60 dark-sky corridor,” as we often describe our precious environment. The Magdalena Astronomical Society expects ESSP will return as a public event near Magdalena in full-force in 2021. In the meantime, anyone interested in our activities should feel free to contact me at

    –John W. Briggs, President
    Magdalena Astronomical Society

    • I have not heard if it will take place in 2022 and their site has not been updated.
      Thank you
