CARINA Star Party 2009
Join CARINA in one of Trinidad's most fascinating settings and reacquaint yourself with the beauty of the Caribbean sky. Bring your family and friends and spread out picnic-style with telescope, binoculars or just a simple constellation map.

In commemoration of the 400th anniversay of Galileo's use of an astronomical telescope, 2009 has been declared the International Year of Astronomy (IYA2009). Honoring this event, the CARINA Star Party 2009 promises to be our largest and most incredible Star Party yet.

As usual, we will have an open air “Star Theatre” with presentations on astronomical topics, and a general introduction to the night sky. Multiple telescopes will be available for viewing, and Star Maps will be available for everyone.

As in previous years, a limited number of tickets will be made available to make the event as comfortable as possible for everyone. There will also be tightly controlled access to the site and ample security to ensure complete safety right through the night. Those wishing to join us in an all-night camp-out under the stars are welcome.


The CARINA Star Party will be held on 25th April, 2009, at the Tracking Station in Macqueripe, Chaguaramas.


Gates open at 5:00pm and presentations begin at 7:00pm. Telescope viewing is from dusk till dawn.

Tickets cost $50.00 each and are available at:

Rostant Advertising, 38 Murray St, Woodbrook 

Eniath's Printing, 6 Gaston St, Lange Park, Chaguanas
