National Parks are becoming a refuge for people from city light pollution. Join amateur astronomers as they present a provocative presentation on controlling light pollution while they point out the heavenly stars.
Binoculars are required as telescopes will not be provided this season. Guests must supply their own binoculars for celestial viewing.
Social distancing and masks are required due to current pandemic concerns. Please do not attend if you are feeling sick or have an elevated temperature.
Held select Fridays at the Big Meadows Area (mile 51, outside the Rapidan Camp Gate). Free to all park visitors. Participants must bring their own binoculars, and a blanket, chair, and flashlight are recommended.
Presentation is canceled if there is inclement weather. Call 540-999-2222 the day of the event to check on its status.
