Private Dark Sky Telescope Tour: Gods in the Sky
September 23 @ 7:45 pm - 9:15 pm$25
Back in a time before television, internet, video games, and graphic novels there was the splendor and drama of the night sky. Gods followed their whims, mortals struggled to please, monsters were slain, and heroes were born. Explore the constellations and learn the Greek Mythology associated with them.
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
