Night Sky Tour: Cygnus & the Milky Way

Experience the wonder of the night sky and capture a view of the Milky Way before the moon rises. Learn a few constellations through a laser-guided tour conducted by park staff. Listen as we recount the legends and myths surrounding these mysterious patterns in the sky. Explore planets, star clusters and other deep space objects through the park's telescopes. 


Pre-registration is required to attend this Program and spaces are limited.

While you may still observe on your own at the park without attending a program, all visitors should arrive before dark.

All programs will be cancelled in the event of rain or thunder.

Programs are conducted at the Night Sky Viewing Area. Follow the red-lit walkway from the public program parking to the seating area.

The park asks that visitors to the Night Sky programs to please leave their pets at home. Dim lighting, large crowds and sensitive equipment do not create a pet-friendly environment.

If the sky is unfavorable for stargazing, an alternative program may be held.

Visitors may want to check the Clear Sky Chart for 48-hour forecasts of cloud cover and viewing conditions.
