We are astronomers who privately own a small working farm growing small grain and hay. The farm is located 6 miles north / north east of Barry, Il and Interstate 72/36 on the Pike and Adams county line and 3 miles from the nearest paved road. Car and truck traffic is far and few. It is very quite, you can hear a car more then 3/4 of a mile traveling on the gravel roads.
We may be a small Star Party right now- but as we grow we will be adding to the field. We will have Showers, Vendor's, and fun activities for the kids.
We do have Porta-Toilets on the field, Running water close by for you to wash up with if you should desire to.
There are activities within an hour's drive from the field. The Mark Twian Caves, River Boat, Shopping. Just to name a few.
The field is 20 acres and above the road and north of 340th/1st ave ( the county line road )
Come spend the weekend meeting new friends, seeing old friends and enjoying the Night Skies.
We are hard to find but worth the drive.
