The CAS Public Star Parties take place at Lock Four Park, in Gallatin (see map below). Go south 1 mile from the intersection of Lock Four and Peach Valley Roads and you will enter a clearing (model airplane field and runway). Continue straight till you cross the field, and turn right to park in the area provided. If it is dark, please dim your lights as you approach the silo; we will be observing close by.
 
You can use www.mapquest.com to aquire detailed maps/directions from your location.  Use "Lock 4 Road in Gallatin" as the destination.
