The Magdalena Astronomical Society and its members "put on" the Enchanted Skies Star Party. They do everything from lining up speakers and getting permits to deciding where the porta-potties go at Star Village.

The Magdalena Ridge Observatory allows participants to ogle their shiny telescopes and facilities. This year they will probably even be doing the driving up and down the mountain to get to the MRO facilities.

The SEC provides a bit-o-money for our star party through advertising. That's funny...we don't use any of their electricity at Star Village, but we all use it in our local homes and businesses.

The Village of Magdalena and the Magdalena Chamber of Commerce tollerate our invasion and help promote the Enchanted Skies Star Party.

The Very Large Array, like MRO, allows participants to poke around and see how the VLA does its thing. The gift shop also provides some of the door prizes.

The Kiwanis International Club of Socorro County decided to get involved with our little party by providing a Saturday breakfast and Saturday supper to raise funds for their local projects for local kids last year. Looks like they want to do it again, and we're happy to have them.

Several members of the star party staff are members of this campus club. Members usually show up for "public night" and man the telescopes and help people setup their telescopes at Star Village.

They supply the land and give us permission to use it.
