First Fridays Under the Stars

Friday, June 2, 2017 | 7:30pm - 9:30pm


Learn about the great 2017 Solar Eclipse on August 21 with a presentation in the education building. The first 50 attendees will get a free pair of solar glasses to observe the eclipse safely. Then after the skies darken volunteers will help point out constellations and nebula.

Use the Charlottesville Astronomical Society’s telescopes or bring your own.

Free and open to all. Viewing from 8:00 to 9:30 pm.

Meet outdoors in the field next to the barn at the Ivy Creek Natural Area. Cloudy skies cancel the outdoor portion.

This event will recur on the even months throughout the year.
