Astronomy Night at Providence Canyon
Come join us Saturday, October 14th, for a starry evening at Providence Canyon State Park! (Look for us at the picnic area with a small building). The evening will start at 7:30 p.m. with a brief presentation by Dr. Rosa Williams on notable celestial objects visible in the current evening sky. Then, weather permitting, we will move to the telescopes set up around the field to view the rings of Saturn, Bright star clusters, Nebulas, and the Andromeda galaxy. The moon is in a New moon phase making the night sky incredibly dark allowing us to point telescopes at harder to see objects as the night progresses. You will even be able to see the bend 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
