Private Dark Sky Telescope Tour: Around the World in 80 Minutes

May 27 @ 9:15 pm - 10:45 pm

$25

In the United States the Greek Constellations and their associated mythological stories are the most well-known.  However, for thousands of years humans of all cultures have been living under the night sky.  In this program we will look at the night sky through the eyes of the ancient Greeks, Chinese, Indians, Native Americans, and more.

Join us at Cherry Spring State Park to take in the splendor of a gold-rated International Dark Skies Park. Those interested in experiencing a more personalized, small group telescope tour of the night sky can join North Star Outdoor Guides for a private telescope tour of the night sky.  Participants in this program will be guaranteed ample telescope time without long waits; includes a discussion of the importance of dark skies, a laser guided tour of various constellations, and telescope viewing.  Objects which may be viewed include planets, nebulae, red giants, globular clusters, galaxies, and binary star systems.

Group Size: max. capacity 16, not including children age 5 and under

Bring: Chairs, bug spray, and a small red flashlight. (ONLY RED LIGHTS ARE ALLOWED ON THE VIEWING FIELD.)

Dress: Dress warmly for cooler than anticipated night temperatures.  The field is at higher elevation and exposed.

Registration Required – Registration will open 45 days prior to class when possible and close at 3pm 2 days prior to class (or when full). You may put your name on a waitlist if class is full.

Fee: $25/person (includes a $3 non-refundable processing fee); Children (age 5 and under) Free
