Event Details

🔭Come join us on Saturday, March 30th, 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 8:30 p.m. with a brief presentation by Dr. Rosa Williams on notable celestial objects visible in the current sky. Then, weather permitting, we will move to the telescopes set up around the field to view the night sky objects. The moon will be in a Waning Gibbous phase. As the night progresses, we will try to point telescopes at harder-to-see objects. This location is great for seeing the bend of the Milky Way Galaxy being far away from light pollution.

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

Please note the park has a parking fee: $5
