Head to Allegany State Park on Park Site #52 on Saturday, June 13 at 9:15 p.m. for a Star Party at the south end of Quaker Lake. At the Star Party, guests will enjoy naked eye viewing of the 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. If you have binoculars, please bring them. Please no pets or unshielded flash lights. (Red cellophane covering a flash light will provide adequate illumination and yet preserve our night vision. Saran wrap painted with a red magic marker may also work.)
Stop by for an informative evening under the stars. In case of clouds or rain, the event will be canceled.
