Astronomy Nights

During Thursdays & Saturdays in July and August (and on special event dates throughout the spring, summer and fall) we host Astronomy Nights in our Dark Sky Preserve.  Our Astronomy Night includes an orientation into astronomy, a review of planets, northern lights, and solar systems, a laser guided sky tour, a tutorial on star hopping, tips and tricks for viewing with the naked eye, as well as instructions on the use of a planisphere (star map) to find objects in the night sky. Participants will also have the opportunity to try Bausch & Lomb wide-angle binoculars and observe through the park’s 8″ Dobsonian Telescope.
