River Ranch Resort & Rodeo is a dark sky area where you don’t need a telescope or binoculars to see the Milky Way. So, if you’re looking for a night out to see the stars, come out to River Ranch on December 14th and join us for a star party. We’ll be there around 4 pm, before sunset, for some solar viewing. Although Sunspots are becoming rarer due to the solar cycle minimum we’re in, there are still lots of prominences and flares to be seen. So, don’t pass up the chance to see the Sun before sunset and the planets, stars, galaxies and nebulae afterward.
River Ranch is located at 3200 River Ranch Blvd, Lake Wales, FL. We’ll have directions to the viewing area at the gate. Just ask for the astronomy star party.
