Family Astronomy Night
July 3, 2023 at 8:00 pm - 8:45 pmFREE
Experience the dark night skies of Cherry Springs State Park during this family friendly astronomy program. Join park staff for a short discussion followed by activities geared towards families and children.
This program is intended for families with young children unable to attend the later program. Open to anyone that doesn’t want to to stay up as late!
Registration encouraged, but not required. Should we need to cancel or modify a program due to weather, etc., we will email all registered participants. Optional registration will open 45 days before the program.
While you may still observe on your own at the park without attending a program, all visitors should arrive before dark.
Park programs occur on the Night Sky Public Viewing Area. Park in the gravel lot and follow the walkway next to the restrooms to the seating area. Since seating is limited, you may want to bring a chair and/or blanket.
We ask that park visitors please leave their pets at home. Dim lighting, large crowds and sensitive equipment do not create a pet-friendly environment.
All programs will be cancelled in the event of rain or thunder.
