Head to Allegany State Park on Friday, July 17 at 9:15 p.m. at Park Site #52 at the south end of Quaker Lake to enjoy naked eye viewing of our beautiful night sky.

You are probably familiar with the Big Dipper, but can you find the Little Dipper?  And how about the ice cream cone among the stars and the graceful swan gliding across the summer sky? You’ll learn about these and other celestial wonders.

Long time amateur astronomer, Bert Probst, will lead guests on a tour of the splendors of the summer sky.  Be sure to dress warm and bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.  Also, bug repellent is not a bad idea.  If you have binoculars, bring them.    Please no pets or unshielded flashlights. (Red cellophane covering a flash light will provide adequate illumination and preserve night vision.)

Please join us for an informative evening under the stars.  In case of clouds or rain the event will be cancelled. Visit the park’s Facebook page for updated information.
