Join Ryan and Heather at Cool Spring Preserve for a night of star and planet gazing on Friday, October 20! 

Participants can expect to see stars, planets (possibly Saturn), and/or the moon through a high powered telescope. While folks are waiting their turn on the telescope, they can check out the Orionids, which is debris left from Haley's comet. There will be excellent viewing this year as the moon will be just a sliver. 

Please bring along a folding lawn chair and a flashlight as this will be a dark night. 

In addition, please wear sturdy walking shoes, dress warmly and bring along some drinking water and bug spray. 

Ryan and Heather are local star enthusiasts and have lived with their kids in Bolivar since 2014. 

Please contact Krista Hawley with any questions you may have at or 703-303-1026.

In case of rain or clouds on Friday, October 20, a rain date of Saturday, October 21 is set.
