Viewing at the Dark Sky Park: Conjunction of the Moon and Saturn
August 20, 2021 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Witness these 2 celestial bodies as they share the same ascension. Conjunctions occur when two astronomical objects – such as planets, stars, moons, or the sun – align in the sky, creating an illusion that they are close together when in reality they are thousands of miles apart. You’ll have the opportunity to view through a telescope and binoculars.
Park in Lot 3. Follow marked path to dark sky viewing area.
This program will be cancelled if conditions are not good for viewing.
