A Young Moon and the Late Summer Sky

Join members of the Pennsylvania Wilds Astronomy Club (PaWildsAstro.org) for an evening observing session in Hills Creek State Park.  Observing will start at about 8:30 with a young moon in its crescent phase.  Once completely dark, the telescopes will move to objects highlighting the late summer sky, including clusters, nebulas, and double stars.  In the event of clouds, a demonstration of night vision equipment will be substituted.  This event will not be held if raining. 

If camping, we recommend walking to the program. If you need to drive, please arrive early and park in the field past the nature center. A small flashlight will be helpful if you can bring one (red is even better).
