Astronomy Night: Looking Up at the Stars

Saturday, February 29, 2020

Join a Park Ranger and a local astronomy club for a night of stargazing. Learn about the planets, constellations and their notable stars, and distant galaxies. Please note: this is a walk-up event; registration is not required. Observing equipment provided by Southern Maryland Astronomical Society. 

Viewing the night sky is dependent on clear skies, therefore, if the prediction is for clouds, rain, etc, we will be a rain date of Sunday, March 1, with the same start time. If conditions further prevent the group from seeing anything on the second night, this event will be cancelled. Please call the Park Ranger Office (301-627-7755) if you wish to receive a notification of the program’s status on the day of the event.
