Paul Probst Leads Fall Astronomy Event

Enjoy naked eye viewing of our beautiful night sky on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. at Park Site #52 located at the south end of Quaker Lake.

You are probably familiar with the Big Dipper, but can you find the Little Dipper? Have you seen the baseball diamond among the stars or a graceful swan gliding across the autumn sky? You’ll learn about these and other celestial wonders.

Longtime amateur astronomer Bert Probst will lead you on a tour of the splendors of the autumn sky. Be sure to dress warm and bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.

Please, no pets or unshielded flashlights. Red cellophane covering a flashlight will provide adequate illumination and yet preserve our night vision. Any plastic wrap painted with a red magic marker may also work.

In case of clouds or rain, the event will be cancelled.
