Event Details:

State parks can be good places to stargaze because they are often far from urban light pollution. Volunteers from the Central Arkansas Astronomical Society will be on hand with numerous telescopes set up on the beach area for viewing by the public and the volunteers will be explaining the different celestial bodies. You may walk to one telescope and see a planet and then go to another telescope and see a “far away” galaxy. Small flashlights are permitted, but not encouraged (they disrupt yours and others' night vision). If you bring one, please put red cellophane over the light.

Admission:
Free
