Special Announcement

Great News for those planning to attend Star Quest this year, at this time the Green Bank Observatory has advised us that the COVID restrictions have been lifted. They are NOT requiring Star Quest participants to be vaccinated or show any proof of vaccination this year. The Café will be open every day; you will be allowed to eat inside the atrium again. We are planning the rocket launch and other children's activities for the children again. If you are coming for the full four-day event, you can come in on Tuesday evening and get set up, then just go to the registration desk on Wednesday morning to check in. Meals will not be available in the cafeteria until Wednesday evening. We will provide updates on this website and Facebook page later if there are any changes.
