Friday Sept 6th and Saturday Sept 7th are the dates. Participants will search and locate major constellations and other heavenly bodies with assistance from amateur astronomers. There will be a couple telescopes there for some nice viewing.
The two hour program begins 30 minutes after sunset. Participants should meet at the Boulder/Lost Lake picnic area entrance gate. The gate may be located by traveling approximately one and one-half miles west of Camp Doris, then turn left into the Boulder picnic area. Binoculars are recommended to assist in viewing the night sky, and a lawn chair may provide desired comfort. The program will be canceled if it is raining or if the sky is overcast.
Participants are limited to 15 per program to assure each visitor has the opportunity to observe several objects through the telescope. Due to the length of the program all participants must be at least eight years of age.
Reservations can be made by calling 580-429-2151 between 9:00 am and 4:30 pm weekdays. Meet at Boulder Gate @ 8pm. Cost is $5/per person.
