Free Astronomy Night!

🔭

We welcome you to join us for a night under the stars, on Saturday, April 8, at Providence Canyon State Park. Beginning at 8:30 p.m. EDT, Dr. Rosa Williams will open with a presentation highlighting Spring constellations and interesting celestial objects. Then (weather permitting) we will move to set up around the field to take a closer look at planets Venus and Mars, as well as “dark-sky” objects like the Orion, Cone, and Owl Nebulas; the Beehive and other “open” star clusters; and globular cluster M3.  With clear weather, we may even be able to catch sight of the Milky Way!

Feel free to bring your own lawn chairs for more comfort. Main entrance is off Rte. 39C. Meet us at the field between playground and restrooms.

Please note the park has a parking fee: $5
