Second Fridays Under the Stars


Under The Stars is scheduled for the second Friday of every month in 2024.  Learn about upcoming celestial events in a short lecture given in the education building at 7:00 PM.  Afterwards, go outside where local area amateur astronomers will help point out constellations, planets, nebulae, star clusters, and distant galaxies.  Have a look through telescopes of the Charlottesville Astronomical Society, or bring your own.   Telescopes will be in the field next to the parking lot at the Ivy Creek Natural Area.

Cloudy skies cancel the outdoor portion.

Although this event is free and open to the public, we ask that you contact the Charlottesville Astronomical Society at vicepresident@cvilleastro.com if you plan to attend.  Only if at least one visitor makes contact and confirms attendance, can the CAS guarantee that they will be at Ivy Creek for their presentation and telescope observing session.
