    Colt Creek Astronomy Night

    We will be at Colt Creek State Park for an astronomy presentation, rain or shine, and celestial viewing (weather permitting). Colt Creek is one of our best sites with skies dark enough to see the Milky Way. The presentation and viewing is open to the general public. An entrance fee of $4.00 is collected, but it is well worth it to see the universe up close and personal.
    Hope to see you there.

We “get around” to several different venues and events during the year. We hope to see you at as many of these events as you can come to.
