FULL A Night Under the Stars!

By Detweiler Park (other events)

Friday, October 13 2023 8:00 PM 10:00 PM EST

This program will take place right before a new moon, so we will have exceptionally dark skies for stargazing! Our Night Under the Stars also occurs near the peak of the Orionid Meteor Shower. The Orionid meteor shower is created by the trail of gas, dust, and ice from the Comet Halley and can produce highly luminous meteors known as “fireballs”. Enjoy the night sky, learn the myths and legends of constellations, and discover the basics of astrophotography! The evening will begin with a short 0.75 mile walk along variable terrain to the open fields. Dress for the weather, bring a flashlight. This program is part of the Park Rx series of programs sponsored by Highmark Blue Shield. Pre-registration is required.
