Astronomy for Everyone at Sky Meadows State Park (w/ Solar Observing)
Sky Meadows and NOVAC invite you to celebrate the Summer Solstice. Starting at 6 pm there will be solar observing ending with the 8:35 pm sunset.
After sunset the evening night sky program begins with a half-hour children's "Junior Astronomer" program, followed by a discussion about the importance of dark skies and light conservation. Then join NASA Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) Ambassadors for a presentation on the latest news in astronomy. Visitors should bring their own lawn chairs and/or blankets. Next, get oriented to the celestial skies with a brief sky tour. Finish the evening by relaxing and enjoying the beautiful night sky. Join Northern Virginia Astronomy Club members in viewing the night sky. Feel free to bring your telescope or binoculars for your own exploration.
