About the Event
Guests will go from telescope to telescope to view what the scope astronomer is focused on. Throughout the evening each operator will zoom in on several objects. The scopes and eyepieces will differ, so even seeing the same object through the different scopes will not look alike. Questions are encouraged and welcome!
This is an all ages event and ladders will be provided for smaller children.
Dress for the cool evening. Turn off your phones so as not to interfere with your night vision. After seeing light, it takes about 30 minutes to get your night vision again. Once you are accustomed to the dark, you can see quite well. If a guest would like to bring a flashlight, only red-lights should be used. Red light doesn't affect your night vision.
Cookies will be provided and a large water container to refill water bottles will be available. Please bring your own water bottle to refill.
**This event is contingent on weather** We will notify you through eventbrite if event is cancelled.
Parking is at Catherine's Pass Trailhead. Overflow parking near entrance to Albion Basin campground.
