Due to today’s weather, Stargazing at Strawberry Hill has been postponed until Friday, October 24th, at 7:30pm. See below for more information. The good news: our trails are still open dawn to dusk and the leaves are in full color!
October 22nd at 7:30pm is your final opportunity of 2014 to view the night skies with Naturalist and local planetarium director Ian Clarke!
Explore the science and the stories of the October night sky: pack a flashlight for the hike to our viewing location – but once we get there it will be lights out, so our eyes can adapt to the relative darkness of a moonless night on the Preserve. Ian will guide you on a tour of the stars and planets. Dress in layers. You may find it warm as you hike, but chilly when you’re standing still at the stargazing site. The talk will be aimed at people using their unaided eyes, but feel free to bring binoculars. Due to the hike, however, you should leave telescopes at home.
