Explore the Summer Night Sky

July 25, 2009 @ 12:00 am

This event is held under the dark skies of the Knob Noster State Park main campground near Lot #61. Park at the campground entrance or amphitheater and walk to the back of the campground. Local amateur astronomers will show you how to find your way around the Summer sky using a few of the brighter stars and constellations. You will have several opportunities to ask questions and look through quality telescopes at the crescent Moon, Saturn and its thin rings, double stars, globular clusters(100,000 stars all at once!), Earth orbiting satellites, and whole galaxies. Maybe even a few "falling stars" will be visible.
