What to know
Almost 160 years ago, one of the bloodiest conflicts of the American Civil War was fought right here in Prairie Grove, Arkansas. On the night of December 6th, 1862, we imagine many soldiers were gazing at the dark night sky, wondering what tomorrow would hold for them. Please join Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park and the Sugar Creek Astronomical Society for a Star Party to share those same night skies. Telescopes will be setup for an evening of viewing Jupiter, Saturn, nebulae, star clusters, galaxies, and more!
