Through Our Telescopes: Hidden in Plain Sight

Look through park telescopes at some of the hidden wonders of the night sky, searching for double-stars and other features tucked into well-known constellations. In August, we may even bring out a large telescope similar to the one this photo! 

Under the guidance of our volunteers and staff, embark on an amazing telescope tour of the night sky.

No pre-registration required. Telescopes available on a first-come, first-serve basis for the time listed. Availability is subject to staff/volunteer availability, weather conditions, and crowd size limitations.


Park programs occur on the Night Sky Public Viewing Area. Park in the gravel lot and follow the walkway next to the restrooms to the seating area. Since seating is limited, you may want to bring a chair and/or blanket

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

Telescopes will not be available in the event of significant cloud-cover. Note that the large telescope requires the ability to go up and down a sturdy set of steps with a railing. 

We ask that all visitors please leave pets at home. Dim lighting, large crowds and sensitive equipment do not create a pet-friendly environment.

Check the Clear Sky Chart or Astrospheric for 48-hour forecasts of cloud cover and viewing conditions.
