Free public Skywatch, everyone is welcome to attend. The event is weather dependent so please call the park at 757-421-7151 to confirm event.
Star and planet watching will begin around sunset. For those who would like some help with new telescopes or just want to learn how telescopes work, we will be holding an informal afternoon “Telescope 101” pre-event beginning about 60 minutes before sunset (scheduled start time). Please feel free to come out early with your new telescope and let us help you learn how to use it.
NOTE: After passing through the first gate, please park outside the large gateposts and then walk over to the telescopes. Please do not drive all the way down to the telescope area. There are signs showing where to park.
PLEASE USE FLASHLIGHTS WITH RED LENS/COVERS ONLY.
